The question asked for "constants" not "constraints".  It's not clear to me what the question is asking.

Are 2 and -5 constants?

In the context of polynomial functions, which I believe is the context of this problem, "constant" refers to the term of power zero in the polynomial.  For a polynomial expression of the form

ax2 + bx + c,

the constant is c.  In this particular problem, the constant term is -10.
