I've never practiced co-ordinate geometry, not even for my actual gmat

p interesects at Y axis
q at x axis

now p and q can both be downwards/upwards

(E) imo

not sure

1) line p can intersect (0,3) both with a positive slope and a negative slope.
2) line q can intersect (3,0) both with a positive slope and a negative slope.
1+2) Still unknown whether both lines intersect the axes with a positive slope or negative slope

= E (i think)
