Given, assuming that both A and C are non-zero, then the graph of $$\displaystyle{A}{x}^{{{2}}}+{C}{y}^{{{2}}}+{D}{x}+{E}{y}+{F}={0}$$ can represents any of the conic sections. We have to check whether the statement is true of not. Since the general form of the conic is $$\displaystyle{A}{x}^{{{2}}}+{C}{y}^{{{2}}}+{D}{x}+{E}{y}+{F}={0}$$ If both A and C are zero then the equation of the section becomes linear which is a contradiction. The equation of a conic section is quadratic. Hence if the values of A and B are non-zero then the graph of $$\displaystyle{A}{x}^{{{2}}}+{C}{y}^{{{2}}}+{D}{x}+{E}{y}+{F}={0}$$ can represent any of the conic sections. Hence the statement is true.
