    (C) c < 0 as graph cuts y-axis below the x-axis a < 0 because graph is frowning curve

    E) inverted U shape meaning a<0 intersecting y axis at negative means C is less than 0 c<0 and also there is shift along x axis in right direction means b<0

    @hashsam1 the line of symmetry is the line x = -b/2a. according to the graph it is to the right of the y-axis (so the sign of -b/2a is positive). we know that a < 0, so if b < 0 then the sign of -b/2a is -(-)/2(-) is negative.
