A coordinate plane is shown in the figure. A curve can be drawn using the equation "a*f(x) = bx – 2b" (ab ≠ 0). If (1, t) is a point on the curve, then in which quadrant does the point lie?
(1) The curve crosses the y-axis on its positive side.
(2) The curve crosses the x-axis on its positive side.

For Statement I:
Since (1,t) point lies on the curve, so we have t = b-2b i.e b= -t.
Now since, curve crosses the y-axis on its positive side, so we have b*0-2b = +ve i.e b= -ve.
From above information, as b= -t, so t is +ve. Thus (1,t) lies in quarter 1.

Statement 1 is sufficient

For Statement II:

+ve = b*x - 2b -> Sign of b can't be determined. Hence statement 2 is insufficient.
