a stright line going acrossed the graph lines. :)

Yes. Speed is the rate at which distance changes over time. In calculus terms v = dx/dt, or the slope of the distance vs. time graph. If the slope of the distance vs. time graph is a straight line, the speed is constant.

Well, no. If the graph is a straight diagonal line, then the DISTANCE is steadily increasing, not the speed. This would translate into a constant speed. If the speed is steadily increasing, the object would travel more distance per unit time as we move along the horizontal axis. Meaning, the graph would curve upward.

The diagonal lines show how the values change over time, also known as a trend

It means that either the distance is measured from the starting-line and the object is moving forward, or else the distance is measured from the finish-line and the object is moving backwards, because the distance is growing as time goes on. If the upward sloping diagonal line is straight, it means the speed is constant. (not velocity)

It means that either the distance is measured from the finish-line, or else the object is moving backwards, because the distance is shrinking as time goes on.

The answer is TRUE because it is a straight line as the graph shows below. http://www.batesville.k12.in.us/physics/apphynet/Measurement/Images/d_vs_t2_graph.gif

No. The distance of a line on a graph will not affect how steep it is. Distance does not affect slope.

A straight line on a distance - time graph represents a "constant velocity".
