(a) and (c)

#### Work Step by Step

(a) should be evaluated without using the Quotient Rule because we are deriving with respect to $x$ and there is no $x$ in the denominator. (b) should be evaluated using the Quotient Rule because we are deriving with respect to $y$ and there is a $y$ in the denominator. (c) should be evaluated without using the Quotient Rule because we are deriving with respect to $x$ and there is no $x$ in the denominator.
