    If the two equations have the same slope, then you can have either parallel lines with no solutions, or the same line twice with an infinite number of solutions.

    Sometimes it has solutions, and sometimes it does not have solutions.

    If it does not allow for the same equation twice, then the answer is never.

    I think its asking if the lines aren't parallel

    The same slope means the line ARE parallel. Parallel lines mean no solution since the lines do not intersect.

    If this question does not allow for the possibility of the equations being the same, then the answer is NEVER. Choice C.
