Yes it is.

false

it is true

The slope of a distance versus time graph provides the instantaneous speed of an object. If data from this graph is then used to construct a speed versus time graph, the slope of that graph would provide the instantaneous acceleration.

its false

The slope at any point is the velocity, so you can construct a graph of that. The slope at any point on that graph is the acceleration. So you can construct a graph of that. The slope at any point on that is the rate of change of acceleration. And so on.

The slope of the line of a distance versus time graph is the velocity of the object. If this is a constant, in other words the graph is a straight line, the object is not changing its velocity and so is not accelerating. If the object is accelerating, the velocity of the object will be changing, thus the graph will not be a straight line, but a curve - the amount of curvature (and direction) tells you how much the object is accelerating (and in what direction - velocity and acceleration are vector quantities with both magnitude and direction).
