(C) \(y = x^2 - 3\)

(D) \(y = x^2 + 3\)

(E) \(y = x^3 - 3\)


a) Eliminate options A and E straightaway as they don't belong to parabola family of equations.
b) The given figure is centered or symmetrical about y-axis. Hence the parabola mustn't posses 'x' terms. So, eliminate option (B)
c) The vertex is on the negative y-axis. So, eliminate option (D).

Now, we are left with option (C), \(y=x^2-3\), which is in the standard form \(y=(x-0)^2+(-3)\) (Opens upward with y-intercept '-3' and centered on the y-axis)

Ans. (C)

It is a parabola with a negative intercept in the y-axis. So the equation must be of the form y=ax^2 - c

Option C matches the equation.
