A) This is not a polynomial. Lines are not polynomials. There are no turning points. B) Yes, this graph represents a polynomial. This line is of the form y = mx + b; there are no turning points as it is a polynomial of degree zero. C) Yes, this graph represents a polynomial. This line is of the form y = mx + b; there are no turning points as it is a polynomial of degree one. D) This graph is not a polynomial. This line is of the form y = mx + b; there are no variables in the expression.
