Solution

## The correct option is A Plant B From the graph for plant A Let us consider the two points, say (1,10) and (7,30) The rate of change=Change in yChange in x =30 − 107 − (1) =206 =3.33 The rate of growth for plant A is 3.33 From the graph for plant B Let us consider the two points, say (1,10) and (4,40) The rate of change=Change in yChange in x =40 − 104 − (1) =303 =10 Hence rate of growth for plant B is greater than plant A.
