Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The places where the function does crazy things like not having a value (indicated by an empty circle), or suddenly jumps from one yvalue to another are called discontinuities (because of them you can't draw the function in a nice line without pen leaving paper). Because they are slightly awry, these places don't have limits, as when x approaches them the function doe *not* settle down to a nice value (which is what the limit is, it asks: 'as x gets close to a, does y get closer to ONE value in particular?' the limit's value is actually this settling down value, call it b).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(1) is incorrect, as the function is nice at x=2 (3) is correct, same reason 4 and 5 are obviously incorrect

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Although I say that, I'm not sure about 3 as it may not have a limit approaching it from both sides, so 3 is probably incorrect

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes. I'm not sure whether it matters that there is no line right of that.
