I think A

The equation for the line is y = 2x/3 + 2

in A, the equation is y = 2x/3 + 0

same slope, different y intercepts

I get an A too.

the line in the diagram goes through (-3,0) and (0,2) thus the slope is 2/3

for the line that is || to this line the slope has to be same. thus..A

A

Notice we have a positive slope.

So rule out BCD,

Now solve for the slope. Ul see its 2/3 So D is out.
