Ans is option A y=4x +4

Substitute x as 0 once and check where y must be positive

Than substitute y as 0 ans check where x must be zero

ans should be c as the y intercept is negative.
Also since it is drawn to scale, and the y and x intercept value seems to be the same

My logic is :
Since the line is upward sloping.. the slope will be positive, E is out

Also the line cuts the Y axis on the negative side , therefore c <0
Eqn from is y = mx + c

so now just B and C remain.. I took a guess then marked C

chetan2u anything that i am missing here?

Yes, you are absolutely correct with your approach but you don't have to guess when you get down to B and C..

B is 4x-4=y..
So when y=0, 4x-4=0.....X=1
When x=0, y=4
So y intercept should be at a distance of 4 times more than x-intercept, but figure is drawn to scale and it shows almost same..

C is y=x-6.
So when y=0, X=6
When x=0, y=-6
So y intercept should be at same distance from origin as x-intercept, and figure is drawn to scale and it also shows almost same..
So C
