    Answer:

    B.  The statement does not make sense because a linear function has a​ straight-line graph.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Linear functions have a general form y = m*x +b and only yield straight-line graphs. Therefore, the statement does not make sense, either the graphed function is not linear, or there was an error in the graphing process. The answer is alternative B.

    *Note that alternative D is wrong because it is incomplete, since linear functions can have a rate of change that increases (m > 0), decreases (m < 0) or that is zero (m = 0).
