    A) The function g has a local maximum at x = 2. B) The function g has a local minimum at x = 2. C) The graph of g has an inflection point at x = 2. D) The graph of g crosses the x-axis at x = 2.

    but what if it isn't because the question says "of the function"

    if there is a positive for all x doesnt that mean it never crosses x axis?

    positive derivative means that the curve is proceeding in downward direction

    f(2)=0 implies that for f at x=2, y=0 thus option D is right.

    Nothing can be said about the other options as there is no mention of the nature of the derivative of f except that it is +ve which implies f is always increasing in the domain. So yes it is D :)
