It is so simple.  where is the confusion ?

the graph of  y = 2.5 x is clearly the graph B.
slope is 2.5 > 1,  it means it is positive,  and steeper than  y = x.

that is
the graph is raising as you move to the right, as slope is positive.
as slope is > 1,   y increases faster than x.. it is more vertical than horizontal.
at x = 2,   y = 2.5 * 2 = 5 units,   it is clearly seen in the graph.

Its in the form of straight line y = mx where m = tan Ф and the straight line passing through the origin

as you see tan Ф = 2.5 so it is an acute angle and satisfies  0° ≤ Ф ≤ 90°

so now we put x = 1

so we get y = 2.5 x 1 so the line must satisfy the point (1,2.5)

and we see only 1 option with the line making a acute angle with the positive direction of x- axis in anti-clockwise direction  and satisfying the point (1,2.5)

so the answer is 2nd graph
