Which one of the following statements is NOT TRUE for a continuous time causal and stable LTI system?

All the roots of the characteristic equation must be located on the left side of the axis.

For a system to be casual, the R.O.C of system transfer function H(s) h which is rational should be in the right half plane and to the right of the right most pole.

For the stability of LTI system. All poles of the system should lie in the left half of S -plane and no repeated pole should be on imaginary axis. Hence,

options (A), (B), (D) satisfies an LTI system stability and causality both.

But, Option (C) is not true for the stable system as, ƖsƖ =1 have one pole in right hand plane also.
