If even....then  f(x)  = f(-x)

 

So   f(-x)  =  2(-x)^3 - (-x)^2   =  -2x^3 - x^2    ...this isn't equal to  f(x)

 

If odd....then  -f(x)  =  f(-x)

 

-f(x)  =  -  [ 2 x^3  - x^2 ]  =  -2x^2 + x^2    ...and this isn't equal to f(-x)

 

So....neither

 

 

Increasing  on  (-inf, 0)  and (1, 2)

 

 

 

cool cool cool
