Since the function and the options are already given, the simplest method would be to try the given values of x and see if the value of y obtained and given int options would coincide. The use of this method of trial and error, it has been shown that the correct answer among the options is the option C, with the solution shown below:y = -0.296 x^2 + 2.7 xUsing (4.6, 6.2):and = -0.296(4.6)^2 + 2.7(4.6)y = 6.2
