    Is the 2 after (x-2) an exponent?

    Since the coefficient of the squared term is negative that means the parabola will have a maximum, so right away you could discard the second and third options since they suggest otherwise. It's important to note here that the coefficient before the squared term affects the width of the parabola and the constant inside the parentheses represents the horizontal shift. The constant outside is your key here, it will raise your graph three units upwards so your range will have to be less than or equal to 3.
