In the coordinate system, does the line l pass through the point (1, 2)?

(1) The slope of the line is 1/2, and the line passes through the origin (0, 0).
(2) The equation of the line is y = x/2

St1: Since point and slope of the line are given : (0,1) and slope = 1/2, we can uniquely define the line and hence can answer all the points that are on line.
Sufficient.
(there is no need to check anything, as it is a DS question. For checking, equation of the line is to be found out, and the point (1,2) is substituted to find whether it lies on the line or not)

St2: Since the equation of the line is given, the point (1,2) can be substituted to find whether it lies on the line or not.
Sufficient.

(1) The slope of the line is 1/2, and the line passes through the origin (0, 0)

This tells us that the line passes through the origin and its x coordinates increase by 2 units for every 1 unit increase in y coordinate. So the line passes through (0+2,0+1) or (2,1) and therefore does not pass through (1,2)

1 is sufficient

(2) The equation of the line is y = x/2
If we substitute (1,2) in the equation, we see that it does not hold true (we get 2=1/2) so the line does not pass through (1,2)

2 is sufficient
