**Vertical asymptote at** **horizontal asymptote is absent.**

**is the oblique asymptote.**

#### Explanation:

Vertical asymptote: Solving denominator for zero we get

Since degree of numerator(2) is greater than denominator(1) horizontal asymptote is absent.

Since degree of numerator(2) is greater than denominator(1) by a margin of 1 there is a slant/oblique asymptote , which can be found by long division.

So straight line
