Step 1. The leading term of the function is $-x^3$ with a coefficient of $-1$ and an odd power; thus we can identify its end behaviors as $x\to-\infty, y\to\infty$ and $x\to\infty, y\to-\infty$. That is, the curve rises to the left and falls to the right. Step 2. Based on the above result, we can match the function to graph (c).
