    Attached plots are Figure 1 in 1.jpg and Figure 2 in 2.jpg

    (a)
    A plot of the RHS ( ay-y^2 ) for a=2 is shown in Figure 1 in BLUE color.
    The values y=0 and y = a give equilibrium lines on which y = const.
    Since the parabola has a definite negative sign at y^2, the left equilibrium line is always unstable and the right one is always stable, no matter what is the sign of a.
    That is trajectories converge to the line y = max(0,a) and diverge ...
