1. Is the slope of line N greater than the slope of line P?
1)N and P both pass through point (5,1)
2)The y intercept of line N is greater than the y intercept of line P.

I think answer should be C,

Because A states that line passes through 5,1 say X1,Y1
And let Y intercept of N is Y2 So, line passes through 0,Y2
Same for P and it passes through 0,Y3
Now Y2 > Y3

Slope of N = Y2-Y1/X1 and of P = Y3-Y1/X1.
if B true then slope of N > slope of P.
So C.
Please clarify your view.
