D, D

Step-by-step explanation:

Nickels are \$0.05, Dimes are \$0.10 and quarters are \$0.25

Simply work out the options and see which one gives you \$1.95

A) By observation, we see that this combination has 16 coins, but the question says only 15 coins. Hence we can remove this as an option.

B) 5(\$0.05) + 7(\$0.10) + 3(\$0.25) = \$1.70 ≠ \$1.95 (wrong)

C) 7(\$0.05) + 6(\$0.10) + 2(\$0.25) = \$1.45 ≠ \$1.95 (wrong)

D) 3(\$0.05) + 8(\$0.10) + 4(\$0.25) = \$1.95 (Correct)

FOr next question, D is not a function because if you observe the values in D, an input of 7 should give 11 i.e (7,11), but there is another option where 7 gives an output of 13 i.e (7,13).

Because for a function to be valid, one input cannot give 2 different outputs, D is not a function.
