Entry-Level Assessment - Multiple Choice: 6

Answer

Answer Choice H

Work Step by Step

The question is asking which graph best represents a person walking slowly and then speeding up. The best graph that represents this situation is H because it can be seen that during the beginning of the time on the x-axis, the person is going slow. As time goes on, the distance also gets higher in a curved shape. This shows that the person was originally going slow, but then changed speed which formed a curved shape with a positive relationship on the graph. Answer Choices F and G are both wrong because they both have a linear graph, which represents a constant speed. Answer Choice I is wrong because it represents a person speeding up and then stopping.
