d.

#### Explanation:

If

Test each of them out:

**a:**

**b**

**c**

**d**

**d.** is the only one that has g(10)=2, thus **d.** is the answer

d.

#### Explanation:

If f(2)=10 , we can say that the inverse of f(x) , say g(x) outputs a value of 2 when 10 is the input , that is g(10)=2.

This is precisely the definition of an inverse function. It undoes or inverses the original function.

You can also think of it as the input and output values switching places.

So we can say g(10)=2. The only option that satisfies this is d)
