I think you should check the first and last answers..

The graph for ax cannot be F. Acceleration is the slope of the velocity curve. At no point does the slope of the velocity curve change abruptly.

The graph for the position x cannot be I. At t=7 the slope of the position graph I is negative so the velocity should be negative.
