**QUICK ANSWER…**

**A**

**SOLUTION****… **** **

**If f(x) = 3x³ + 4x² + x – 8, then f(-2) will be obtained by directly substituting -2 into the equation as shown below:**

**f(-2) = 3(-2)³ + 4(-2)² + (-2) – 8**

**f(-2) = 3(-8) + 4(4) + (-2) – 8**

**f(-2) = -24 + 16 – 2 – 8**

**f(-2) = – 18**

**Now for the right answer to the above question:**

**Option A is correct.****Option B is incorrect.****C is incorrect.****D is not the correct answer.**
