14 pts 7. Each of the direction Þelds on the handout comes from a 2 × 2 linear system of diﬀerential
equations. For each of the following conditions, put the letter (or letters) of the graph(s)
on the handout which is (are) described in the condition. If no graph satiÞes the condition,
simply write NA (not applicable).
a. The critical point is at the origin.
b. The system is non—homogeneous.
c. The critical point is asymptotically stable.
d. One eigenvalue is positive and the other one is negative.
e. The critical point is a stable center (exactly one graph satiÞes this condition).
f. The critical point is not at the origin and is unstable.
g. The matrix has complex eigenvalues.
