    a. the maximum y value of f(x) approaches 2 b. g(x) has the largest possible y-value c. f(x) has the largest possible y-value d. f(x) and g(x) have equivalent maximum y-values

    read them as the same for some reason one is an exponential, one is a quadratic

    Use process of elimination for this

    a) the maximum of that parabola is at the vertex (0,2), since it opens down the maximum for that exponential occurs when you move to -infinity, or it has a limiting value

    Here's an approach that might help: Convertthe answer choices into questions: Does the maximum y value of f(x) approach 2? Does g(x) have the largest possible y-value? Does f(x) has the largest possible y-value? Do f(x) and g(x) have equivalent maximum y-values?
