    The latex doesn't show. What is the given line's equation?

    the given equation is \(y = \dfrac{3}{2}x +5\) right?

    the slope of it is 3/2, right?

    hence, the required line has the same slope with it (3/2) , now you can pick either c or d.

    Suppose c is the correct answer, then you need put the point in, if it satisfies the equation, then c is the right one, if it doesn't, we check d

    to c, \(y = \dfrac{3}{2}x\), I replace the point (2,3) that is y = 3, x =2 so \(3 = \dfrac{3}{\cancel 2}\cancel 2\\3=3\) Bingo, hence c is the correct one

    Then, no need to check d. C is the correct answer
