    I think simple linear regressions is basing predictions on x = what you expect to get from y


    I think it's just trying to get you to come up with a null hypothesis based off the above model. I'm guessing this from AS psychology?

    A null hypothesis is when you predict that there is no difference or relationship between two factors or co variables
    A linear regression graph is a straight line graph
    So by deduction I'd assume that a null hypothesis linear graph would be the one with the most scattered points around the best for or low correlation coefficient
    Hope that helps!
