Are these assertions true?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am referring to polynomials with real coefficients.

1. There exists of polynomial of any even degree such that it has no real roots.

2. Polynomials of odd degree have atleast one real root

which implies that polynomial of even degree has atleast one critical point.

3. Polynomials of odd degree can have no critical point.
