We have proved here that the expected number of real zeros of a random hyperbolic polynomial of the form , where is a sequence of standard Gaussian random variables, is . It is shown that the asymptotic value of expected number of times the polynomial crosses the level is also as long as does not exceed , where . The number of oscillations of about will be less than asymptotically only if , where or . In the former case the number of oscillations continues to be a fraction of and decreases with the increase in value of . In the latter case, the number of oscillations reduces to and almost no trace of the curve is expected to be present above the level if log .
