I would say none of the above. It completely depends on the gradient of the slope. For example if the gradient is 5 then the y intercept would be negative, and if the gradient was 1, then the y intercept would be positive
What is the difference between option D and E?
If, the gradient of the slope can take any value and thus, the intercept can take any (+,-,&0) then that choice is already present in option D.
Posted from my mobile deviceHi
kshv,
The basic idea of the question is to see for what values of y-intercept will a line passing through (3, 5) have
positive slopeas per the below figure, we can see all the values of y-intercepts less than 5 will satisfy the above condition
So, the correct inequality MUST be
c < 5That's why option E is the answer
Think about this,
Can we say c must be less than 0 always? No right! Coz all values from 0 < c < 5 are left out. So, none of the options satisfy the condition 'MUST'
Hope i'm clear!
