A point of inflection.

A

An asymptote.

B

A local minimum.

C

c

What is the period of this function?

d

Write down the equation of this function in the form $y=a\sec\left(bx\right)$`y`=`a``s``e``c`(`b``x`), $y=a\csc\left(bx\right)$`y`=`a``c``s``c`(`b``x`) or $y=a\cot\left(bx\right)$`y`=`a``c``o``t`(`b``x`).
