Upwardly curved line.

#### Explanation:

To have an acceleration the object must have an increasing velocity. The velocity on a distance-time graph is the gradient (since it is defined as the change in distance / change in time).

This means the gradient must be increasing, i.e. the ‘line’ is in fact a curve and must curve ‘upwards’.
