I think this is a clear E. Taking the two statements together, we have a point, which lies on line l and we know that l is not perpendicular to the x-axis. So what...

lets consider (1):

Since line passes through (-2, 3) its equation can be given as:

y-3 = m (x +2) where m is the slope. ---- (a)

Now let's put (x,y) = (2, -3) in the equation (a)

-3-3 = m (2+2) ---> 4m + 6 =0

We don't know m, hence (1) is insufficient.

Let's consider (2)

l is not perpendicular to x axis. This tells us nothing useful.

When we combine (1) and (2) , we still don't have the value for m (slope of the line).

I think the answer should be (E)

It is a clear E.
Any line can pass through the point in 1.
