Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I assume A negative... Not sure what C means, but it could be B "curved" but I don't think that's a relationship...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Extrapolated means you analyzed the data and calculated where the curve would continue to past the recorded data.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would say B based on this definition: "Curvilinear: A curved relationship is called curvilinear, because it approximates a curved line."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well they say relationship so that's why I picked A, though it is a curve.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I've never heard "curved" used to describe a relation either, but that might be right if "negative" is reserved for straightline correlation only.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"In statistics, a relationship between two variables is negative if the slope in a corresponding graph is negative"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But Cliffsedge has a point... curved isn't a very common description.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah that's why I assumed negative :P. It deff is both, but curved isn't a relationship imo. It's the shape of it :).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Here'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."
