**Question: 200**

**2.**

The preceding graph represents f(x). How many solutions does the equation f(x) = -1 have?

A. zero

B. one

C. two

D. three

E. It cannot be determined from the information given.

**Correct Answer:** D

**Explanation:**

D. When the test writers (and math teachers in general) talk about f(x), they're really talking about the y-values on the graph. In this question, where you're asked about f(x) = -1, you really want to focus on when the y-value is -1. As you can see in the following graph, this happens three times, so f(x) = -1 has three solutions.
