Hey all,

my answer is different from all.

i ll go with E.

here is my explanation:

ax+by+c=0;

or, y= -(c+ax)/b; or, y= -(c^2+acx) / bc ; (on multiplying C )

statement 1 : BA <0 ;not applicable

statement 2 : AC >0 ; applicable;

in the eq, c^2 is +ve

ac is +ve

bc not known;

on comparing with standard (y=mx+c)

m = -ac/bc ; since bc is unknown, you cant predict the slope of line ,

hence you cant say, whether it will cut Y-Axis or not.

next;

ax+by+c=0;

or, y= -(c+ax)/b; or, y= -(bc+bax) / b^2 ; (on multiplying B )

statement 1 : BA <0 ; applicable

statement 2 : AC >0 ; not applicable;

in the eq, b^2 is +ve

ab is -ve

bc not known;

on comparing with standard (y=mx+c)

m = -ba/b^2 ; since b^2 is +ve, the slope of line is +ve .

constant (i.e c in standard eq) = bc; not known

since, bc is not known, whether it will be on +ve or -ve Y-axis.

so, you cant say that whether this line will cut the X-axis or not.

please make me correct if m wrong.

hence you cant say, whether it will cut Y-Axis or not.
