Rao, answer must be A.

1) Slope is negative, this means that the line 'travels' downward from left to right. It will always pass through quadrant 2 and 4.

2) Insufficient. Line may or may not pass through quadrant 2 because you do not know the slope.

D for me.

1 clearly says that the line will not intersect quad II.

2 says that y intercept is -ve.....that means this line will never intersect quad II.

C

1) gives slope but no points to draw a line
2) gives y intercept and only one point (need 2 points to make a line)

1 and 2 together you can plug in numbers to get a second point

Here's a graphic that supports my answer (A):

I am confused now. What is the meaning of "intersect quadrant II"? Does it not mean that the line must have x -axis and y-axis intercepts in quadrant II?

Means... does the line pass thru II quardant. And as shown by asdert ... every line with -ve slope must pas thru 2nd and 4th quardant. It may or may not pass thru eith Ist or III rd quardant.
