The graph of the line with a negative slope, such as the given, $m= -\dfrac{1}{3} ,$ is a line that is inclined to the left. Hence, the possible choices are Choice C and Choice F. Since the graph of the line becomes closer to the horizontal line as the absolute value of the slope decreases, then for a slope of $m=-\dfrac{1}{3}$, the graph is Choice F since Choice C will correspond to item # 60 where $m=-3$.
