In each of

Answer :

Vertex (0, 0); focus (-2, 0)

Since, the vertex of the parabola is (0, 0) and the focus lies on the positive x-axis, x-axis is the axis of the parabola, while the equation of the parabola is of the form y2=-4ax.

Since, the focus is (-2, 0), a = 2

Thus, the equation of the parabola is y2 = -4 × 2 × x,

=> y2 = -8x
