Step 1

The given function is

Step 2

To find:

• The vertical and horizontal asymptotes of the function.
• The interval of concavity and the inflection point.
• Sketch the graph of the function using information from sub-parts (a) and (d).
Step 3
• The function will have vertical asymptotes at those points at which denominator of the function is equal to 0.

Therefore, substitute denominator of (1) equal to 0 gives, x2 = 0, i.e. x = 0.

Hence x = 0 is the vertical asymptote of t...
