When I'm trying to determine end behavior, it's the coefficient of the leading term of a polynomial function that I should inspect.

A) This makes sense because the coefficient of the leading term tells us how the polynomial behaves on the left side of the graph and the right side of the graph.

B) This does not make sense because although the leading term tells us how the polynomial behaves on the right and left sides of the graph, it does not tell the complete story. We also need to know the degree of the polynomial.

B) seems to be jibberish

I always thought that the "leading term" (highest exponent) and the degree were the same thing, anyway
