a.

D: all real numbers

R: all real numbers

b.

D: all real numbers

R: y ≤ 4

c.

D: -6 ≤ x ≤ 2

R: y ≤ 4

d.

D: x ≤ 4

R: all real numbers

domain is all reals for all polynomials. So, C and D are out.

since a parabola has a vertex, it has a maximum or a minimum, so the range cannot be all reals. So, A is out.

B must be the answer.

The only confusion might be whether the vertex is a max or a min. If B is correct, it must be a maximum.

Since there are real roots, the vertex at (-2,4), which is above the x-axis, must be a maximum, so y <= 4.
