1)W parallel x-axis - If parallel to X axis, then the slope cannot be determined (or it is undefined)

2)Z parallel y-axis - Then the slope is 0.

Hence we can say E (cannot be determined)

Carsen, long time no see :wink:

OA will clarify my doubt

Agree E.

A quick Note on Line parallel to a axis:
We know the equation of a line is ax+by+c=0 where c is a constant and the slope is (coeff of x/Co-eff of y).

y=c, a constant, is the equation of any line parallel to x axis (horizontal line) and x=c, a constant is the equation fo any line parallel to y axis (vertical line). The slope of ALL horizontal lines = 0 and the slope of ALL vertical lines is UNDEFINED.
