$x^{2016}+cx^{2015}+\binom{c}{2}x^{2014}+\binom{c}{3}x^{2013}+\cdots+\binom{c}{2016}$

How many real numbers $$c$$ are there such that the above polynomial has 2016 real roots (counting multiplicities)?

Details and Assumptions

• We define the generalized binomial coefficient as $$\displaystyle\binom{c}{k}=\dfrac{c(c-1)(c-2)\cdots(c-k+1)}{k!}$$.

• If there are infinite real numbers $$c$$ satisfied, submit $$-1$$ as the answer.
