Given function is
$\left(\frac{d^2y}{dx^2} \right )^2 + \cos\left(\frac{dy}{dx} \right )= 0$
We can rewrite it as
$(y^{''})^2+\cos y^{''} =0$
Now, it is clear from the above that, the highest order derivative present in differential equation is  $y^{''}$

Therefore, the order of the given differential equation $\left(\frac{d^2y}{dx^2} \right )^2 + \cos\left(\frac{dy}{dx} \right )= 0$  is  2
Now, the given differential equation is not  a polynomial equation in its derivatives
Therefore, it's a degree is not defined
