# The vertex of the parabola (y – 2)^{2} = 16(x – 1) is

A. (1, 2)

B. (- 1, 2)

C. (1, - 2)

D. (2, 1)

Answer :

Given equation of the parabola is (y - 2)^{2} = 16(x - 1)

Comparing with standard form of parabola (y - a)^{2} = - 4b(x - c) we get,

⇒ vertex = (c, a) = (1, 2)

∴The correct option is A
