Option A is correct.

Step-by-step explanation:

Correlation coefficients tell us how strongly the two variables are associated.

A positive correlation is a relation when both the variables move together in the same direction. Like if value of first increases the other also increases.

When the correlation coefficient is greater than 0, this means that both variables are correlated.

So, the answer here will be:

A. There is a linear relationship between the variables, and whenever the value of one variable increases, the value of the other variable increases.
