¹The horizontal axis should be labelled K, 3, 6, 9, 12, not 0, 3, 6, 9, 12. Blame GeoGebra, not me.
Update (February 3, 2013): Thank-you to all who have taken my quiz. If you haven’t, there’s still time before ‘marks cut-off.’ In a week or so, I hope to find time to summarize and interpret the results as well as provide my answer key. I did realize that, without a scale labelled on the vertical axis, B & C are indistinguishable. I tried to slip that by an audience of math educators. No such luck. But tell me this is the first time you’ve had to read the mind of a teacher when answering a quiz question. Also, the wording of the question is ambiguous. I’m cool with that. I can’t help you. It’s a quiz. Choose the best answer.
