Q1 - I don't get the answer

Why is the "+1" in the answer? I thought it would be only d since there are d dimensions in the data.

The bias is part of the QP problem, although it is not part of the objective . This is because is part of the constraints, and its value affects the values of the variables in the constraints, hence it affects the objective through these variables.
