    the in/out table is obtained by the equation y = 2x^2 - 5. so if you add 5 and divide by 2 you'll get. (y+5)/2 = x^2. now, each of those are the y's (the output of the original equation) so if you stick in those values for y and you don't get a perfect square, then that choice is correct answer. for example, y=-3. x^2=1 perfect square. do this with the other numbers... until you don't get a perfect square.
