Differentiation - Find Minimum Gradient of Curve Question

I received this question on finding minimum gradient of a curve and it is confusing for many students as they probably lack the flexibility in seeing gradient beyond dy/dx.

I have presented this question in a slightly different manner by reducing the usage of  first derivative (dy/dx) and second derivative (d^2y/dx^2).
