Just to clarify, the graph for a first order ln[X] vs time and zero order [X] vs time reaction is a decreasing linear slope. For second order it is an increasing linear slope. Right? So when would they be the increasing and decreasing exponential graphs?

I think that you should always get a linear plot for 0,1,and 2 order reactions!

you should always have a linear graph based on the order of the reaction.

first, second, and zero order reactions have linear plots

All of the graphs for the ordered reactions should have linear plots. It just depends on what is on the axis that determines what is the order of the reaction.

All the graphs will be linear however, the K sign for the slope will be different. Zero and first order graphs will have a negative slope while a second order graph will have a positive K slope.

all graphs are linear but the slopes and axis vary

To my understanding and looking at the textbook first order reactions will have a negative (-) slope, second-order reactions will have a positive (+) slope, and zero order reactions will have a negative (-) slope. This is due to the value of k either being positive or negative which affect the slope of the graph. Hope this helps.
