    A real world example - Ohm's Law: V=IR Let R be constant. V is the responding variable I is the manipulated variable. V is DIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL to I (given R is constant). As I goes up, V goes up proportionally.

    Inversely proportional would be something more like this: \[Fg = G \frac{ M _{1}M _{1} }{ r ^{2} }\] Fg is inversely (well, inverse-squared) proportional to the radius r.

    So the answer would be (B) direct proportion.
