Hard to be specific as the question is very general, but it will have a negative gradient or slope.


Retarded motion means a force is being applied in the opposite direction to the velocity. This means the object slows down or decelerates.

On a graph of velocity vs. time this means it will show velocity decreasing as time increases, or a negative value for the gradient (#(dv)/dt < 0# if that means anything to you) so it will slope from top left to bottom right.
