Please don't post OA with the question. Spoils the fun

Question: When y=0, is x>r?
Statement 1: INSUFF

Statement 2: INSUFF

Together, L has negative slope. So for every increase in x, y becomes less.
If s<0, then the line is either in the III or IV quadrant.
x>r. SUFF

Agree with C. But isnt X<r. Since the line has negative slope, indicating that the line intersects the X axis at a angle>90 degrees.
