## Lines Curves

Question 1 |

P _{a} and P_{b} are adjacent to each other with respect to their x-coordinate | |

Either P _{a} or P_{b} has the largest or the smallest y-coordinate among all the points | |

The difference between x-coordinates P _{a} and P_{b} is minimum | |

None of the above |

Question 1 Explanation:

Draw the line from the first to third point, and look at whether the middle point is above, at or below it. If the middle point is on the line, all slopes are equal. If the middle point is above the line, then the slope from the first to the second point is the highest. If the middle point is below the line, then the slope from the middle point to the second is highest. In any case, you can find a greater slope betweem two adjacent points.
