1. A parabola has either a minimum or a maximum, but not both.

The axis of symmetry, which contains the vertex, is the line

x = -b/2a = -2/(-4) = 1/2

You should now be able to get the max/min and thus the vertex

2. Express the function in canonical form by completing squares:
if f(x)=a(x-h)²+k,
then
a>0 => the parabola is concave up, hence a minimum exists
a<0 => concave down, hence a maximum.
The location of maximum/minimum is given by the point (h,k).
The line of symmetry is x=h.

To proceed with completing the squares, extract and factor out the coefficient of x²:
f(x)=-2(x²-x) + 2
=-2[(x-1/2)²-(1/2)²]+2
=-2[(x-1/2)²]+5/2
So the curve is concave down, h=1/2, k=5/2 and (h,k)=(1/2,5/2) is a maximum.
The line of symmetry is x=1/2.

4. By completing squares, we get the two parameters h and k which represent the x- and y-coordinates of the vertex.
In this case, they are (1/2,5/2), as you can see from:
f(x) = -2[(x-1/2)²]+5/2
