Co-ordinates of Point B = (2, 2) (Same x co-ordinate as that of A and Y co ordinate 3 units up than y co ordinate of A)

Co-ordinates of Point C = (-4, 2) (Same Y co-ordinate as that of B and X co-ordinate 6 units Left than X co-ordinate of B)

Co-ordinates of Point D = (-4, -5) (Same x co-ordinate as that of C and Y co-ordinate 7 units Down than Y co-ordinate of C)

Co-ordinates of Point E = (5, -5) (Same Y co-ordinate as that of D and X co-ordinate 9 units Right than X co-ordinate of D)

Answer: Option C

Official Explanation

You could waste time finding both the x- and the y-coordinates of point E, but you don't have to go that far. Focus on the x-coordinate first, and then glance at the answer choices. Can you eliminate a few?

Since parallel lines CB=6 and DE=9 begin from the same line CD, the x-coordinate of point E is larger by 9−6=3 than that of point B (in other words, point E is three coordinates to the right of B). Since BA is parallel to CD, the x-coordinate of point B is equal to that of point A=2. Thus, the x-coordinate of E is 2+3=5.
Only answer choice C has an x-coordinate of 5, so this is the right answer.

Answer: C

Just focus on the x-axis. You're moving 3 units right from point given; that makes x co-ordinate as 5. Only option C.
