By this graph, we can pick two points to find the slope. Two clear points are $$(0, 3)$$ and $$(1, 5)$$. Slope = $$\frac{rise}{run}$$. The rise is $$2$$ and the run is $$1.$$ Therefore, the slope is $$\frac{2}{1} = 2$$, or $$D$$.

Thanks for that excellent answer, Daisy...!!!

We can also find the slope using the two points Daisy chose in another manner [we actually could use any two points on the line  ....they will give the same result  ]

slope  = [ subtract the y coordinates in some order ] / [ subtract the x coordinates in the same order ]

[ 5 - 3 ] / [ 1 - 0 ]  =   2  / 1    =  2
