Step 1

1 of 2The contours are equally spaced concentric circles which do not become more closely packed further from the origin. Thus, the matching surface has the same constant slope as we move away from the origin, making it a cone rather than a bowl.

Also, all values are negative in the contour. i.e. the matching surface should be a downwards surface. Hence, the contour diagram matches with surface (ii).
