It means that the object in question is moving at a constant speed.If the graph is a straight horizontal line, then the speed is zero.

Look for the key to the symbols on your graph, which will explain the straight line.

Time is plotted on the X-axis. Speed or velocity is plotted on the Y-axis. A straight horizontal line on a speed-time graph means that speed is constant. It is not changing over time. A straight line does not mean that the object is not moving!

Linear equations are those having no exponents; they produce straight lines when you graph them. Once you have exponents, you get curved lines.

If the axes are time/distance then, and only then, it means a constant velocityIf not, then this Q doesn't have enough data to A

BecAuse that would mean it is going an infinite speed. The slope of a distance time graph is the objects velocity or speed. If there is a line parallel to the distance axis, there is a vertical line. The slope of a vertical line is infinite. It is not possible to go an infinite speed.

When there is a curved line going upwards on a graph it means the distance is increasing

Many sets of data do not form into straight lines. If by "What if" you mean how to plot a line onto this graph. Then simply draw a curved line of best fit.
