(2y-3)^2
a.4y^2+9
b.4y^2-6y+9
c.4y^2-12y+9
d.4y^2+12y+9

i got A but i wanna make sure....

yes... A. is the correct answer.

Just expand the binomial.
You know how to do it?
First term is (2y)^2 = 4y^2.
Second term is twice the product inside the parentheses which is 2y*-3 = -6y and twice that is -12y.
The third term is the last number squared which is -32 or +9. Do you see any answers that fit that? I do. If you will learn the method I showed you, you can do these things in your head.

A point of clarification: A is not the correct answer.
