The graph does not touch the  x  axis anywhere. That means there are no points on the graph that have a  y  value of  0 . There are no  x  values that cause   y  to be zero.

 

So... there are no real solutions to this equation:   f(x) = 0

Hectictar is correct of course but the question is very badly worded becasue this is the equaton of 

 

\(y=(x-2)^2+6\)

 

Which has an infinite number of solution pairs.

 

BUT

\(0=(x-2)^2+6\)       has no solutions

I believe for quadratics that "solutions" refers to the zeros of the particular function. Nonetheless, I also agree that it can cause some ambiguity and avoiding that language is preferrable. It is better to either use "zeros" or "roots."
