There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

Does the line pass through the first quadrant? I. the line has x-intercept=-1 II. the slope of the line is greater than 1

I go for C coz we have to consider the case in which the slope of the line is infinitively large ( the line is vertical)

Laxie,

Shouldn't it be E then? The line x = -1 has infinite slope (which is >1) and also x intercept = -1 and doesn't pass through first Quadrant.

Other lines such as:
y = 2x+2 have slope > 1 and x intercept = -1 abd pass through 1st Q.

Laxie, please explain!

refer to my illustration. The point here is that : with a vertical line, we can understand that its slope is infinitively positively big ( greater than 1 for sure) OR we can also say that the slope of a vertical line doesn't exist. That makes it controversial for this problem.
