(1) The line does not intersect with the line y = x + 2
(2) The line passes through the point (3,3)


Statement 1: The line does not intersect with the line y = x + 2
Two lines do not intersect each other if:
1. They are parallel
2. They are same lines

In both the cases, the slope of the line will be same as that of the line y = x + 2
SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: The line passes through the point (3,3)
We know that the line passes through two points (0,0) and (3,3)
We can find the slope using the equation (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1)
SUFFICIENT

Correct Option: D

In my modest opinion it should be answer choice (D).

From the stem one of the points that the line intercepts is the origin (0;0) what do I need to know the slope? I need the equation of a parallel line (parallel lines have the same slope) or another point through which the line passes (formula for the slope ; (y2-y1/x2-x1).

Statement one tells me that the line y=x+2 does not intersect the line, so the line of the stem and the line of statement one are parallel. sufficient.

Statement two tells me a second point through which my line passes so I can apply the formula. Sufficient.

answer choice D.
