The correct answer is B) 2 

Explanation ::

\(\dfrac { { z }-\alpha }{ { z }+\alpha } +\dfrac { \overline { { z } } -\alpha }{ \overline { { z } } +\alpha } =0\)

\(z \overline { z } + z \alpha - \alpha \overline { z } - \alpha ^ { 2 } + z \overline { z } - z \alpha + \overline { z } \alpha - \alpha ^ { 2 } = 0\)

\(|{ z }| ^{ { 2 } } =\alpha ^{ { 2 } },\quad { \alpha }=\pm 2 \)
