blover - thank you for the questions, they are really challenging!

can you please camouflage the answer, because it´s much more motivating if you don´t know the answer from the very beginning :-)

thanks

I think we need to calculate slope and to get slope we need to points.

however A gives only 1 point and we cannot get slope.

had A given us 2 points we could have calculated the slope and use the point in Question with one of the points in A and see if we get the same slope.

If same slope then on line.

B- doesnt give much info of points on L.

E.

Trying to simplify......see if this helps.

stmt 1 gives one point and there is a possibility of infinite lines passing through this one point. Hence, it is not sufficient to say that line that passes through this point will also pass through (2,-3).

stmt2 simply eliminates one of the infinite possible lines. This simply says that line l is not vertical. Hence, insufficient.

Combining stmt1 and stmt2 also gives infinite possibilities of line l as it says that the line is passing through point (-2,3) but is not vertical.

Hence, E.
