Solution

## The correct option is D If (x, y) is a point on its graph, then (-x, y) is also on the same graph.A function f(x) is said to be even, if it remains unchanged after replacing x in the equation with -x. i.e., f(−x)=f(x) As both x and -x give the same output from the function. Hence, its graph will be symmetric about y-axis. There will be two values of x for one value of y, one will be +x and other will be -x. Hence, in the graph if (x, y) is a point, then (-x, y) will also be a point.
