Answer:C. the graph of an ellipse with intercepts and negative 7 and positive 7Explanation:An ellipse is an oval shape. In order to represent a function, a graph must pass the test of the vertical line; that is to say, a vertical line drawn through any area of the graph should only pass through one point. In an oval or ellipse, a vertical line that passes through two times; this means that it is not a function.
