(i) 3x2 -4x+15 is a polynomial of one variable x. 

(ii) y2 -2√3 is a polynomial of one variable y. 

(iii) 3√x +√2x is not a polynomial as the exponents of 3x is not a positive integer. 

(iv) x - 4/x is not a polynomial as the exponent of -4/x is not a positive integer. 

(v) x12 + y3 + t50 is a polynomial of three variables x, y, t.
