That's a certainly interesting test. I'll have a go at it another time. I have a backpiling of great resourcesI just can't seem to get around to them. Don't you just hate when that happens, lol? Glancing over Question A, I think I can do those. B kinda looks... odd. I don't immediately see how to solve it, but I'm sure it has to do with the fact that is continuous. C and, particularly, D look intimidating. Could you possibly explain what "image" means in this context? I'm honestly not familiar with the term. I'd say it's not nearly as complicated as it feelsyou know? Things always look complicated if you don't know the terms being used, lol. BTW, is there any way you could post the test without the solutions? I find that my peripheral vision is startlingly good. I have a hard time trying to look at the questions intensely without seeing bits of the solutions.

I know one high school student who could pass this... guess I grew up in the wrong country! A few nitpicks... The solution to A2 supposes that f is defined as in A1 (= a^x), but the statement of A2 makes no such connection. In question C, use "its" for possessive (which is what you want). "it's" is a contraction for "it is" (which is a subject and a verb). In D, "Let f *be* ..." I've said it before: there's no way I could write such a test in a foreign language, so your work is remarkable to me!

Sadly, I got past part A and had no clue what to do afterward. X_X.
