The function is linear if there is a common difference between the y-values for a constant increase in the z-values while the function is exponential if there is a common ratio between the y-values for a constant increase in the z-values.
There is neither 1 common difference nor a common ratio between the y-values so the data in the table is neither linear nor exponential.
