Each of the options has the same graph of the line: $\frac{1}{3}x+1$, therefore, we only need to focus on which inequality sign is correct. Looking at the graph, the line is dotted. This means that it must either be a $\gt$ or $\lt$ sign. ($\leq$ and $\geq$ need solid lines, denoting "equal to"). Looking again at the graph, we see that below the line is shaded, or the values less than the line, meaning we need to use a $\lt$ sign. This is answer G.
