Vertical asymptotes occur when the denominator of the

rational function is#0# .In this question this would occur when

#x - 2 = 0# i.e,#x = 2# [ Horizontal asymptotes can be found when the degree of the

numerator and the degree of the denominator are equal. ]

Here they are both of degree

#1# and so are equal.The horizontal asymptote is found by taking the ratio of leading

coefficients .

hence y

# =1/1 = 1 #
