As we learnt in

Definition of Modulus of z(Complex Number) -

\left | z \right |=\sqrt{a^{2}+b^{2}} is the distance of z from origin in Argand plane

- wherein

Real part of z = Re (z) = a & Imaginary part of z = Im (z) = b

 

 |z^{2}-1|=|z|^{2}+1

\therefore\ \; \left | (x+iy)^{2}-1\right |=x^{2}+y^{2}+1

\therefore\ \; \left | (x^{2}-y^{2}-1)+i 2xy\right |=(x^{2}+y^{2}+1)

    (x^{2}-y^{2}-1)^{2}+4x^{2}y^{2}=(x^{2}+y^{2}+1)^{2}

\therefore\ \; 4x^{2}y^{2}=(x^{2}+y^{2}+1)^{2}-(x^{2}-y^{2}-1)^{2}

    =(x^{2}+y^{2}+x+x^{2}-y^{2}-1)(x^{2}+y^{2}+1-x^{2}+y^{2}+1)=2x^{2}+2(y^{2}+1)

4x^{2}y^{2}=4x^{2}y^{2}+4x^{2}

\therefore\ \; x =0

Correct option is 2.
