What did you get in GCSE maths?
just look at the MS says pls
4. "the function f is even" means f(-x)=f(x), hence symmetry, similar to a cosine graph.

why do i have to draw the negative quadrant if its says x>0

It's in the wording, it says it "has domain R. For x>=0..." so the domain is not restricted, it's just saying that for values of x>=0, the y value is found from that equation. The full equation would be f(modulus x) I suppose, they're just trying to trick you with wording.

Most important thing is that they do not say the domain is x>=0, simply the function f(x) is used to find values for x>=0, then the "even function" means the graph is reflected in the y axis.

makes sense, so is it correct to say if function is stated even for X>0 i should draw modded graph

No, its only the fact that they said the function is even and there are no restrictions to the domain.
You shouldve been taught about odd/even functions, even if not in too much detail, perhaps google them, theres some decent explanations on wiki etc
