A root $\alpha$ of equation $f(x)=0$ can be computed to any degree of accuracy if a 'good' initial approximation $x_0$ is chosen for which

  1. $f(x_0) > 0$
  2. $f (x_0) f''(x_0) > 0$
  3. $f(x_0) f'' (x_0) < 0$
  4. $f''(x_0) >0$

Answer is A since in numerical methods, any law of differentiation is not used and also in numerical methods f(x) converges to 0 and A satisfies this condition.
