Eigenfunction/Eigenvalue question

  • #1
Hey all,

So I was watching an MIT OCW video on intro QM and came across this 'clicker' question. (Shows up at 4:45)

Apparently the correct answer is B, but C looks valid to me as well. Could someone explain why C is incorrect?

Thanks

Work it out with pencil and paper carefully, and you'll see that there are only two combinations that work.

Oh wow, I seriously misread the question... Thank you. This thread should be closed probably.
