(i) y + (2/y)
No. No. It can be observed that the exponent of variable y in term 2/y is -1,which is not a whole number. Therefore, this expression is not a polynomial.
(ii) x10 + y3 + t50
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.
