    (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

    the line of symmetry x = -b/2a, is a positive value, and we know a < 0 so 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.

    a simple example with 2 positive roots x=1 and x=2 the polynomial would be -(x-1)(x-2) = -x^2 +3x -2 this suggests a<0 b>0 c<0
