The correct graph of the given story “It snowed softly, and then stopped. After a short time, the snow started falling hard.” is (c).
Work Step by Step
This graph shows that there was a soft snowfall in the beginning and after some time it was stopped. After that the snowfall was hard. According to the statement, snowfall is initially soft and then closes for a while, and it becomes heavy after a short time. So in the beginning, the slope will increase but due to the snowfall being soft it will be less. Then the slope will remain steady as the snow stops for a while. In the end, the slope will increase again because the snowfall is heavy. So, the graph (c) is correct. Therefore, the given story matches with the graph (c).
