In this ques.
(1) says l doesn't intersect x+y=1 this means l is parallel to x+y=1 which implies that slope should be -1 (same as of x+y=1)
(2) says l intersect l so l can be anywhere intersecting l so we can't get a unique answer
so we can determine slope of l by statement first alone.
What is the correct ans.?

A should be the answer.

(1) tells that line is parallel, thus same slope.

(2) can have any slope and can intersect at any angle!

Thus A
