**Solution:**

(a) Identify terms which contain x and give the coefficient of x:

(i) Term containing x = y^{2}x and Coefficient of x = y^{2}

(ii) Term containing x = - 8yx and Coefficient of x = - 8y

(iii) Term containing x = x and Coefficient of x = 1

(iv) Term containing x = zx and Coefficient of x = z

(v) Term containing x = x; xy and Coefficient of x in both the terms = 1, y

(vi) Term containing x = 12xy^{2} and Coefficient of x = 12y^{2}

(vii) Term containing x = 7x; xy^{2} and Coefficient of x in both the terms = 7, y^{2}

(b) Identify terms which contain y^{2} and give the coefficient of y^{2}.

(i) Term containing y^{2} = - xy^{2} and Coefficient of y^{2 }= -x
