    So when the graph gets closer and closer to the asymptote, will its gradient decrease?

    depends on the asymptote, for y = 1/x , the gradient would increase as you get closer to x=0 and smaller as you get close to y=0.

    Not entirely true as it depends which side you're approaching from. I.e. approaching x=0 from x<0 you get that the gradient decreases.
    But yes, this is a counterexample to his post nevertheless.
