    We don't know what f(x) is. But we know that f(x) approaches \(-\infty\) as x approaches x =-5 from the right. That means x =-5 is a asymptote of f(x) . Dat sit.

    Loser66 is saying that as x gets closer to 5 from the right side, the value of y heads off to negative infinity. So that's why you have that path where the curve shoots off down below the graph
