#### Explanation:

**An** antiderivative of

antiderivatives include:

Any (every) function that can be expressed in the form **an** antiderivative.

The general antiderivative is expressed by choosing one of the antiderivatives and adding an "arbitrary constant" usually named

It is convenient (but not required) to choose the first antiderivative on the list above and say:

The (most) general antiderivative of

**Strange but true**

According to the definition of general antiderivative, we can also say "The (most) general antiderivative of
