    Answer: (3) X2 – 1

    Explanation:-

    X2 + 1
    The factors of X8 – 1 = (X2)3 – (1)3
    = (X2 – 1) (X4 + 1 + 2 X2)

    The factors of X4 + 2 X3 – 2 X – 1 = X4 – 1 + 2 X3 – 2 X
    = (X2 – 1) (X2 + 1 ) + 2 X (X2 – 1)
    = (X2 – 1) (X2 + 1 + 2 X)
    H C F = (X2 – 1)

    Then, the H C F of X8 – 1 and X4 + 2 X3 – 2 X – 1 is X2 – 1.

    Hence, the answer is X2 – 1.
