The number of real solutions of the equation, $$x^7+5x^5+x^3−3x^2+3x−7=0$$ is
$$(A) 5 \quad (B) 7 \quad (C) 3 \quad (D) 1.$$
Using Descartes rule we may have maximum no. of positive real roots is $3$ and negative real root is $0.$ So there can be either $3$ real roots or $1$ real root but how to conclude what will be the no. of real roots exactly. Can you please help me?
