    For quadratics, it is easy to see what is happening when you sketch them. So sketch B and look for which values of x will give you an answer less than 0, so that will be domain where the parabola goes below the x-axis.

    But technically that IS showing working...

    Other than that, you can show that the minimum point is is blow the x-axis, and is in the middle of the two roots, therefore the domain will be anything in between the two roots.

    Solve for x for part b.
    Whatever you get for the critical values, x is in between them.

    Lower Cv < x < Upper Cv

    For the second part, just find the values of x which satisfy both ranges of part a and part b - the set of values which satisfy both curves.
