Answer :


We know that, equation of a line in Cartesian form is

Where, a, b and c are direction ratios and (x1, y1, z1) is a particular point on the line.

Given, line is parallel to , therefore it has direction ratio as 2, 1 and 3

i.e. a = 2, b = 1, c = 3

And lines pass through (5, -2, 4)

Putting values, we get equation of line as

Which doesn’t match the given equation of line!
