The question needs to be corrected as The graph between gravitational field intensity and distcane from the centre of earth.

Gravitational field intensity of earth is numerically equal to g, the accelearation due to gravity.

g = 0 at the centre of the earth and maximum at the surface. From centre to surface of earth the relationship is linear, ut above the surface the value of g (and hence the gravitational field intensity) varies inversely as the square of distance from the centre.

Please see the required graph below.

The graph between gravitational field intensity and distcane from the centre of earth.
