    The sum of the squared residuals

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If you sum the residuals, you would get 0

    if you sum of the absolute values of the residuals you wouldn't be doing "least-squares regression"

    The influence of outliers D The slope is another metric that has nothing to do in creating the regression line
