Which of the following points does not lie on the line 3y = 2x − 5?
(a) (7, 3)
(b) (1, −1)
(c) (−2, −3)
(d) (−5, 5)

(d) (-5,5)

Explanation: 
(-5,5) does not satisfy the equation 3y = 2x - 5          
[RHS = 2 x (-5) - 5 = -15; LHS = 3 x 5 = 15 and 15 ≠ (-15)]
So, the point (-5,5) does not lie on the equation.
