    Which one of the following statements concerning the regression line is true?
    <br>A. There is a positive linear relationship between the two variables.
    <br>B. The slope is greater that 1.
    <br>C. The intercept is at or near 30.
    <br>D. Vehicles with larger wheelbases have the worst fuel economy.
    <br>
    <br>There is a linear relationship but is it negative (A = false).
    <br>The slope is negative and thus less than 1 (B = false).
    <br>The intercept of the line ...
