Even if you don’t solve for the correlation coefficient, you can already solve this by process of elimination and inspection. The correlation coefficient has a positive value, therefore, it’s not D. Looking at the data, you can see a trend in the values; as one data increases, the other increases as well. Therefore, the dependency of the variables is strong and the correlation coefficient must be close to 1. So, the answer is B.
