Answer:

See below

Explanation:

I would say #-0.68#, but still #-0.68# does not indicate a strong correlation.
Keep in mind that any numbers that are between -0.5 and -0.7 show weak negative correlation only, same for positive.

The other numbers given in the question indicate very weak correlation.

See my table below.

My own

The size of #r# indicates the strength of the correlation.

I hope this helps.
