Yes, you are correct..
here we have to find a value for the slope, so insufficient..

But had the question been- Is the slope positive? or Is the slope negative?
two statements combined tell us that the slope is negative as y decreases/increases corresponding to increase/decrease in x that is opposite effect on both
so ans will be C
