Answer:

Horizontal asymptotes #y=0# and #y=1.5# and vertical asymptote #x=0#

Explanation:

One can find asymptotes of #f(x)# two ways

one , finding how #f(x)# behaves or tends as #x->oo# or #x->-oo#

and here as #f(x)=(3e^x)/(2-2e^x)=3/(2e^(-x)-2)#

as #x->-oo#, #e^x->0# and #f(x)->0/2=0#.

Similarly as #x->oo#, #e^(-x)->0# and #f(x)->3/2=1.5#

This gives us horizontal asymptotes as #y=0# and #y=1.5#

two as #f(x)=oo#, #2-2e^x=0# or #e^x=1# i.e. #x=0#

Hence we have a vertical asymptote #x=0#
