Let R={f(x) included in Q[x]: the coefficient of x in f(x) is 0} Prove that R is a subring of Q[x].

If R is a ring and p(x) is included in R[x] then f(x) is the associated polynomial function from R to R. Find a p(x) included in Zmod2[x] such that f(x)=0 for all x included in zmod2. I know that Zmod2 is all the polynomials whose coefficients are 0 and 1 but I have no idea what I am I trying to look for.
