Don't guess. :D A jump discontinuity is when the function approaches different limits from the left and the right. An infinite discontinuity is when the function approaches infinity from either the left or right. A point discontinuity is when the function approaches the same limit from both sides, but the function does not exist at said point. Continuity is, well, continuity.

No. Look closer. From the left, it approaches a value somewhat higher than the value it approaches from the right. In short, they do not approach the same limit from both sides :)
