# Write the general term in the expansion of (x² - y)⁶

**Solution:**

It is known that (r + 1)^{th} term, (Tᵣ ₊ ₁) in the binomial expansion of (a + b)^{n} is given by Tᵣ ₊ ₁ = ⁿCᵣ aⁿ ⁻ ʳ bʳ.

Thus, the general term in the expansion of (x² - y)⁶ is

Tᵣ ₊ ₁ = ⁶Cᵣ(x²)⁶ ⁻ ʳ (- y)ʳ

= (- 1)ʳ ⁶Cᵣ (x)¹²⁻²ʳ (y)ʳ
