    B Y = x

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The oblique asymptote is the quotient that results when the rational expression is divided out. The remainder of that division is responsible for the hyperbola that has a vertical asymptote at x=-1 and the oblique asymptote at y=x.

    (x^2 + x - 2) / (x + 1) = x - 2 / (x + 1)

    The oblique asymptote is ...

    y = x
