For $t \leq 1s$
$V_L = 8t$
$ \Rightarrow L\: di = V_L dt$
$\Rightarrow \int\: Ldi = \int\: 8 \: tdt$
$\Rightarrow Li = \large\frac{8t^2}{2}$$ = 4t^2$
$ \Rightarrow i = 2t^2$
So, current versus time graph is a parabola.
For $1s \leq t \leq 2s,$
$V_L = 16 – 8t$
$ \Rightarrow \int \: L\: di = \int\: (16 – 8t)\: dt$
$ \Rightarrow Li = \large\frac{16t – 8t^2}{2}$
$ \Rightarrow i = 8t -2t^2$
So, $i$ vs $ t$ graph is a parabola
