    Exponential function means the variable is on the exponent of the expression. Can you see which of the options have x on the exponent?

    good, Now, with the point (2,36), you have if x =2, f(x) =36 between option 1 and 3, which satisfies that condition? (just replace x =2 into it and calculate the result)

    \(3^2=3*3\) it is not 3*2
