First time I have posted in this section. When I chose Economics, I knew it would be difficult, but I didn't know it would be THIS difficult! Anyway I have a class test in a couple of weeks and this question came up on a past paper and I can't figure it out. Could anyone help? Thank you very much!

(i) The individual’s indifference curves are straight lines.
(ii) The individual’s ordinary (Marshallian) demand curve for good X is
X = (0.5M)/PX, where M is the individual’s income and PX is the price of good X.
(iii) The individual’s preferences are homothetic.
- a) Only (iii)
- b) Only (ii) and (iii)
- c) Only (i) and (ii)
- d) All of them
