30y2 + x    This is a polynomial.

 

30y2 + x1/2    If this your expression, it is not a polynomial because the exponent of x is a fraction.

 

(30y2)/x    This is not a polynomial because  x  is in the denominator.

 

30y2    This is a polynomial.

A polynomial cannot  fractional exponents associated with any variable.....so the second one  is out

 

Also....

 

(30y^2 ) / x  =   30y^2 x^-1....and a polynomial cannot have negative exponents associated wiith any variable

 

So....

 

The first and last answers are  correct...[ only non-negative  non-fractional exponents are allowed ]
