**Answer:**

**Option 2,3 and 4 are correct.**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

**To find : **Which terms could be used as the first term of the expression below to create a polynomial written in standard form? Check all that apply.

**Solution : **

The polynomials in standard form is written from higher degree to lower degree** i.e. in descending order.**

**The given polynomial has degree 6**: , and it can be ordered respect any of the two variables either r or s.

Adding a new term as first term needs to have degree equal or greater than 6.

**1)** cannot use as first term because its degree is less than 6.

**2)** it can be use as degree is 9.

is the standard form.

**3) ** it can be use as degree is 10.

is the standard form.

**4) ** it can be use as degree is 6.

is the standard form.

**Therefore, Option 2,3 and 4 are correct.**
