Answer is B : I quadrant,

Convert the equation to the form y=mx+c.

\(3x + 5y = -2\) is \(y = -3x/5 - 2/5\) And applying values for \(x\) as 0,1,-1 we can see that it doesn't pass through I quadrant.

Simple way to solve this questions is to draw the line on the coordinate plan by taking the x-intercept and y-intercept. We will get a line that won't pass through 1st quadrant.

hence, B is the answer.

3x + 5y= -2
rearranging the equation:
y=-(3/5)x-(2/5)
slope is negative
line passes through either II,I ,and IV quadrants or II,III, and IV quadrants.
Y intercept is negative => line passes through II,III and IV quadrants.
Any point (x,y) in I quadrant will not satisfy the given equation.

Answer: B

3x + 5y = -2

Put x = 0, y = -2/5
Put y = 0, x = -2/3

Plot the two points. You will see that the line will pass through II, III and IV quadrants but not through quadrant I.

Answer (B)

Also note that a line cannot pass through all 4 quadrants...

The equation is 3x + 5y = -2. Since both x and y are positive in the 1st quadrant, sum of 2 positive numbers can never yield a negative.
