Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(x^4\) will tend to positive infinity as x approaches pos/neg infinity. (because the power is even) When this is multiplied times 2, i.e. \((2)\cdot x^4\), it then tends to negative infinity. (Roughly saying that: infinity × negative =  infinity)
