    Answer:

    C:  none

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Here we have two separate functions named ‘y.’  Eliminate ‘y’ temporarily by equating these functions together:

    x + 2 = y = x – 1

    Subtracting x from both sides, we get:

    0 + 2 = y = 0 – 1, or

           2 = -1

    This is never true, so C is the correct answer:  NO solutions.

    An easier way in which to do this problem is to visualize the graphs of

    y = x + 2 and y = x – 1.  The graphs are parallel straight lines; they never intersect, and therefore we can conclude “no solution.”
