2) The slope of the line L is positive


Let the line K be y=mx+c, where m is the slope and c is the y-intercept.
S1 - y-intercept =5=c
therefore, equation of line K, y=mx+5
since it passes through (1,5)
5=x+5, therefore x=0
Line K is y=5 which intersects L at (5,t). Hence t=5.
Sufficient.

S2 - Slope of line L is positive.
It can be any line, we cannot find t.

Answer A.

Please give kudos, if u liked my post!
