alimad, for the line described the x-intercept has to be greater than zero, if the intercept is negative then the line has positive slope, if the intercept is zero then the line has infinite slope (or undefined?), that's why the answer is C, I think.

C for me.

y=mx+4

at x=0, y=4.

consider 1: y=0, x= -1. slope = (4-0)/(0+1) = 4...+ve slope => cannot be 1
consider 2: y=0, x=0. slope = undefined, since denom is 0....cannot be 2
consider 3: y=0, x=6: slope = (4-0)/(0-6) = -2/3 ... -ve
