Solution

(i)

Yes, this expression is a polynomial in one variable x.

(ii)

Yes, this expression is a polynomial in one variable y.

(iii)

No. It can be observed that the exponent of variable t in term is , which is not a whole number. Therefore, this expression is not a polynomial.

(iv)

No. It can be observed that the exponent of variable y in termis −1, which is not a whole number. Therefore, this expression is not a polynomial.

(v)

No. It can be observed that this expression is a polynomial in 3 variables x, y, and t. Therefore, it is not a polynomial in one variable.
