I think is the answer is E
Stmt 1 - doesn't provide much insight
Stmt 2 - provides info on line 2 and nothing about line 1
Taken together, no insight about line 1

IMO C,

A - both slopes can be -ve or +ve or a mix of two
B - slope of line2=45 but no info on line1

both A & B
worst case: even if slope of line is less than 45 then it would be 45-40=5 deg. which is +ve
