  1. 1.
    y = x^2+1
    This is always positive, with its minimum value at x=0, where y=1. The range is [1,∞0, but that's not where it is increasing.

    Now, the question asks about the reciprocal function z = 1/y

    z = 1/(x^2+1)
    Where y increases, z decreases, and vice versa. So, z is increasing on (-∞, 0), answer B

    2. OK

    3. None of the above. Would be C, but the horizontal is y = 1/2. I assume you wanted (x-4)/(2x+1)

    4. vertical at x=2 means C or D
    horizontal at y=1 keeps C or D
    intercept at (3,0) means D
    increasing keeps D
    so, D.

    5. D = x not 2/3 means A or B
    y-intercept at (0,1/2) means B.

    So, B.
