    The correct answer is C from the definition of a relative minimum.

    if we are talking about points "near" (x,y) it might not be the absolute minimum, as there may be other minimums

    c because it can't be b, an absolute minimum unlees ALL points not just the ones that are near (x,y) would have to have greater y values
