1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
i cant believe i got this wrong.. i even checked the textbook for that and still got it wrong :/
B,C,D,E are 100% correct.
the other 2 i logically matched them..
increment of x obviously gonna be F
and the tangent line, or the differentiable of y is A
so whats wrong?

dy and Differential of y are the same thing.

A is the line, whose equation would be y - y0 = f'(x0)(x - x0), where (x0, y0) is the point where the line is tangent to the curve, and f'(x0) is the slope of the tangent line. Other notation for f'(x0) is $$\frac{dy}{dx}|_{x = x_0}$$.
