C.

If (r,s) is on the line, then it must satisfy the equation s = 3r + 2. That is, if we get this equality from the given information then we can say that (r,s) is on the line y=3x+2.

1) product of two expressions is 0 => either of them or both are 0
=> 3r +2 - s = 0 , here we get s = 3r + 2.
=> But this equation might not be 0. It is possible that 4r + 9 - s = 0

So we cant say anything from this. INSUFF

2) we get s=3r + 2 , OR s = 4r - 6.
INSUFF.

Combining, s = 3r + 2, hence the line must pass through (r,s)
