B

Plot the values of the independent variable (X) against the log of the values of the dependent variable (Y).

C

Plot the log of the values of the independent variable (X) against the log of the values of the dependent variable (Y).

D

Plot the values of the independent variable (X) against the square root of the values of the dependent variable (Y).

E

Plot the values of the independent variable (X) against the reciprocal of the values of the dependent variable (Y).
