  1. "steepness" is measured by the absolute value of the slope, m, used in the standard linear equation
    y=mx+c
    The greater the value of m, the "steeper" is the curve.
    If you transform/interpret equations to the above form and compare the values of m in each case, you will find which line is steepest.
