Two parallel lines pasing through 2 symmetrical points at the X axes.
Should be E

One point per line is not sufficient to determine the slope(s).

these are 2 || lines.. so slope is = INFINITY.. ..known..

should be C

The only way that could be possible is if both lines were on the same line, in which case they wouldn't be parallel. Is C your answer or the OA?

my reasoning is that wehn we take the statements 2gether,... the resultng figure will have 2 parallel lines one passing thru -3,2 and other thru.. 3,2
