I think A. E,C Rejected because they have 6. coordinates with abscissa or ordinate as 6 cant be inside a triangle with (0,0),(0,5) and (5,5) coordinates. B rejected because it has a negative abscissa. D, I think will land just outside the Hypotenuse. Waiting for the OA.

OA has to be A.. 1) Since the coordinates are (0,0); (0,5); and (5,5) Anything above 5 in each is out C and E out 2) Quadrant I means both x and y POSITIVE Eliminate B 3) A mere look at graph and position of triangle will tell you.. For every x as 0, y can be 0 to 5 and similarly for other values of x.. So y >x Eliminate (4,2) D Only A possible

(A) is the answer.
