Answer is E...

1) Fixes quadrant of intersection. However, insufficient alone.
2) Fixes the slopes of the lines once the point of intersection is defined. Insufficient alone.

However, both taken together will give you the answer.

Another C, if Y-Int of n is greater then that of p, then slop of line n is less then p.

from 1,
for line n,

5 = m1 + c1 = > m1 = 5 - c1

for line p,

5 = m2 + c2 => m2 = 5 - c2

insufficeint.

from 2,
c1 > c2

insufficient.

from 1 and 2

m2> m1 hence C
