    the answers i chose are as follows in the following. B, A, E is from textbook diagrams. F is the tangent line because it touches curve at one point. Not sure about D and C, a friend helped me.

    D looks like it's only another label for f(x) ... the linearization of f at x is the tangent line at f(x).

    Everything else looks fine.
