**Question: 410**

**14.** If *f*(*x*) = *x*^{2} + 2, which of the following could be a value of *f*(*x*) ?

A. -2

B. -1

C. 0

D. 1

E. 2

**Correct Answer:** E

**Explanation:**

**E** Because any value squared must be 0 or positive, the least possible value for *x*^{2} is 0. This means the least possible value of *x*^{2} + 2 is 2. So, A, B, C, and D are not possible values for *f*(*x*). Only E is a possible value because when *x* = 0, *f*(*x*) = 2.
