# If i is raised to an odd power, then it cannot simplify to be?

# a) -1 b) -i c) i

In complex number 'i' is referred to as √-1. It is considered to be an imaginary number.

## Answer: If i is raised to an odd power, then it can not simplify to be -1.

Let us proceed step by step

**Explanation:**

As we know that, the value of i is √-1.

Let us square on both sides, we get

i^{2} = √-1 × √-1 = -1

i^{3} = i × i × i = -1 × i = -i

Hence we observe that we get -1 for even power which clearly shows that we cannot get the same value for odd power.
