## Understanding QuasiLinearity

Hi,

I have two questions.

(1) I am trying to understand how the following function is quasi-linear:

Code:
f = min(1/2,x,x^2)
For it to be quasi linear it has to be quasi convex and quasi concave at same time.

(2) I think the reason the above function is not concave is cause on a certain interval (0,1) f = x^2 which is convex. Am I correct in my reasoning?

Thanks guys
