## Question

### Solution

Correct option is

The centre of the ellipse is at the mid-point of its foci. So, coordinates of centre are (2, 1).

Clearly, two foci lie on the line x = 2. So, major axis is parallel to y-axis.

The distance between two foci is 6.

.

Now,

Hence, the equation of the ellipse is
