If for every x, there is one and only one value of y, we have a function
in your c)
I see 1 >3
and 1 > 7
oops, contradiction!
same is true for a and b
mmmmhhh, look carefully at D

in b, x=1, y=2 or 3 not a function
in c, x=1, y=3 or 7, not a function
In a, x=5, y can be two values. not a function
in d. each x has a related unique y.
