    I would suggest

    1. A= 0, X-ints= 4, max = 2, min=2
    2. A= 2, X-ints=2 , max = , min=
    3. A= 1, X-ints= 1, max = , min=
    4. A= 0, X-ints=3 , max =1 , min=1

    When you talk max's, min's, do you mean stationary points or just a global min/max?

    A cubic might have no max or min. A quartic might have only one max and no min or one min and no max. Pickslides gave the largest possible number of each.
