Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0E If x is to a power that is not 1, the equasion is not a line. A. is a horizontal line B. is a vertical line C. is a line of slope=1 D. is a line of slope=3/4 E. is a PARABOLA. "x^2" is a giveaway sign of a parabolic function Therefore, the answer is E
