Since a and b are positive integers i took a=b=1. so a+b=2.

only the last f(x) = -3x

f(2) = -6 and
f(1) = -3

therefore f(2) = f(1) + f(1) .

f(a+b) = f(a) + f(b)

1) f(x) = $$x^2$$
f(a+b) = $$(a+b)^2$$ is not equal to f(a) = $$a^2$$ + f(b) = $$b^2$$

2) f(x) = x+1
f(a+b) = a+b+1 is not equal to f(a) = a+ f(b) = b

3) f(x) = $$(x)^1/2$$
f(a+b) = sqrt(a+b) is not equal to f(a) = $$a^1/2$$ + f(b) = $$b^1/2$$

4) f(x) = $$2/x$$
f(a+b) = $$2/(a+b)$$ is not equal to f(a) = $$2/(a)$$ + f(b) = $$2/(b)$$

5) f(x) = -3x
f(a+b) = -3(a+b) is equal to f(a) = -3a + f(b) = -3b
