Let the 2 eqations be

y1 = (m1 * x1) + c1
y2 = (m2 * x2) + c2

From 1

X intercept is x at y=0

so

x1 = -c1/x1
x2 = -c2/x2

x1 * x2 = (c1 * c2)/(m1*m2) is +ve

Insuff.

Doesn't tell us whether m1*m2 is +ve or -ve

From 2

c1 * c2 is -ve.

Insuff.

Doesn't tell us whether m1*m2 is +ve or -ve

Both:
Suff.

m1*m2 is -ve

So the ans is (C)
