    The answer's definitely A. If x= 0 and y=0,, then 0=0 It would work to some other, like x=5, and y = -5

    Not exactly... If this was an equation for a line, there would be one solution. A solution would refer to the point that the line crosses the x axis. The line y = -x would only cross at one place.
