It is A. Construct the equation of the line in each case and substitute values for all variables and see if a condition x <= 0 and y > 0 is possible. If it is possible, then the line passes through second quadrant.
(1) Line equation: y = (-x/6) + c
(2) Line equation: y = mx - 6

(Equation of line is y = mx+c)

any line with -ve slop has downward movement from left to right. so it you extend this line, at some point it passes through (II) quadrant.
