Which of the following pairs could represent a function? Select three that apply.

A: {(2,-5),(4,-5), (6,2), (8,3)}**
B: {(-1,5),(3,5),(6,5), (9,5)}**
C: {(3,-4),(5,2), (3,8), (6,7)}
D: {(0,3), (4,2),(-1,7), (0,3)}
E: {(-1,1),(-1,6),(-1,8), (-1,0)}
F: {(-4, 2),(3,-2), (-4,-2), (5,1)}

We are supposed to select three that are correct, but I've only figured out 2 so far. Can anyone help me figure out the third one? Thanks in advance.

1. as long as each x value appears only once, it is probably a function. So, I'd pick A and B on that basis.

D also works. While 0 appears twice as the first element, the 2nd element is the same. So, the pair (0,3) appears twice, but it does not violate the rules for functions.
