Oops, forgot to mention that the answer for problem 2 is d.

In both case I agree. In 1) the function is odd and therefore symmetric about the origin

In 2)again an odd function is symmetric about the origin, so none of the above

Definition of Odd Function

A function with a graph that is symmetric with respect to the origin. A function is odd if and only if f(–x) = –f(x).
