Is the line through points P(–7, 2) and Q(7, –6) parallel to the line through points R(–1, –5) and S(–3, –1)? Explain. (1 point)
No; one line has zero slope, the other has no slope.
Yes; the lines are both vertical.
Yes; the lines have equal slopes.
No; the lines have unequal slopes.

Hmm  if you are given two points \(\rm (x_1 , y_1), (x_2, y_2)\) then the slope is\[\rm Slope = {y_2  y_1 \over x_2  x_1}\]

No, @lucwex that's the slopeintercept form of the equation of an oblique line. Tho formula for slope is what @ParthKohli said.
