Answer:

Horizontal: #uarr x = 1 and x=-2/3 darr#. Graph is inserted. Look at the ends #x = +-2#.

Explanation:

To make y real, #-2<=x<=2#.

The equation is #y=(2x+sqrt(4-x^2))/((3x+2)(x-1))#

So, #x-1=0 and 3x+2=0# give vertical asymptotes.

As x is bounded, there is no horizontal asymptote, and for the same

reason, there is no slant asymptote.

The illustrative graph is inserted.
