(i) As a^{2}\epsilon Z\; \; \; \therefore 2a^{2}+b\epsilon Z\; \; for \: all\; \; a,b\epsilon Z
That is , a\ast b\, \: \epsilon Z\; \; so \: \ast \: binary
(ii) Note that  1\ast 2= 2\times 1^{2}+2= 4
             and  2\ast 1= 2\times 2^{2}+1= 9
       ie 1\ast 2\neq 2\ast 1
\therefore  It isn't commutative
