    Answer: (3) 23

    Explanation:-
    tanθ + cotθ = 5 ………………. (1)
    Square on both side,
    (tanθ + cotθ)2 = 52
    tan2θ + cot2θ + 2 tanθ cotθ = 25
    tan2θ + cot2θ + 2 cotθ/cotθ = 25                  (tanθ = 1/cotθ)
    tan2θ + cot2θ + 2 = 25
    tan2θ + cot2θ  = 25 – 2
    tan2θ + cot2θ = 23

    Then, the tanθ + cotθ = 5, then tan2θ + cot2θ is 23.

    Hence, the answer is (3) 23.
