I'm pretty sure it's right.

Here it is below:
It's correct for the x-values you're plotting it for.
7. It might look 'wrong' because you have constraints: normally the graph should continue infinitely.

What do you mean?

It's right.

What he means is you have been given a range of values to plot the graph in. In theory it should go to infinity.
10. it looks very nice
11. Why does it look wrong to you?

How would I show this on the graph?

You don't need to. The question gives you a range of values, so you use those.

Should I rub out the extra bit of the lines? If I do this won't the graph look too small?

Don't worry!

However, you could have doubled the scale of your graph, i.e. two boxes per unit: that would make it look 'bigger'
16. It's right but rub out that weird stuff on the bottom of the graph, that's not needed.
