In the xy-plane, if line k has negative slope, is the y-intercept of line k positive?
(1) The x-intercept of line k is less than the y-intercept of line k.
(2) The slope of line k is less than -2.
Please provide explanation. I will provide OA soon. Thanks!
(1) Not Sufficient.

It should always be to the right of the blue line.

Even for a slope of "-2", the y-intercept C has to be more than "0" or +ve to satisfy both statements.
