Let make the parabola in form of $y^2=4ax$
Hence making
Hence replacing makes equ(1)
Now vertex for $Y^2=4aX$ is (0,0)
Hence $X=0,Y=0$
$y-2=0\Rightarrow y=2$
$x-1=0\Rightarrow x=1$
(1,2) are the vertex of $(y-2)^2=4(x-1)$
Focus (a,0)
Focus (1,0)
Axis for $Y^2=4aX$ is $Y=0$
Hence $y=2$ is the axis of the parabola $(y-2)^2=4(x-1)$
Equation of directix for $Y^2=4aX$ is $X+a=0$
For $(y-2)^2=4(x-1)$ is
Hence (c) is the correct answer.
