My tutor was trying to teach me limits but i have no idea how to solve this one:

lim 1
x-->2 (x-2)^2

we had to make a chart and a graph, which i already did.
It asks what the limit is

Okay, what does your graph show? Does the graph get closer and closer to some specific y values as x gets closer and closer to 2? If yes, then that y value is the limit. If not, then the limit does not exist.
