I assume A negative... Not sure what C means, but it could be B "curved" but I don't think that's a relationship...

I think you may be right.

Extrapolated means you analyzed the data and calculated where the curve would continue to past the recorded data.

I would say B based on this definition: "Curvilinear: A curved relationship is called curvilinear, because it approximates a curved line."

Well they say relationship so that's why I picked A, though it is a curve.

I've never heard "curved" used to describe a relation either, but that might be right if "negative" is reserved for straightline correlation only.

"In statistics, a relationship between two variables is negative if the slope in a corresponding graph is negative"

But Cliffsedge has a point... curved isn't a very common description.

yeah that's why I assumed negative :P. It deff is both, but curved isn't a relationship imo. It's the shape of it :).

Here's my goto site for stats: http://stattrek.com/statistics/charts/scatterplot.aspx?Tutorial=Stat I'd say "negative" as well because the standard term is "nonlinear" not "curved."
