The coordinates of the point on the line through $(3,-4,-5)$ and $(2,-3,1)$ at which the line crosses the plane $2x+y+z=5$ is ?

$\begin{array}{1 1} (a)\:\:(1,-2,7)\:\:\qquad\:\:(b)\:\:(1,-3,8)\:\:\qquad\:\:(c)\:\:(2,-1,4)\:\:\qquad\:\:(d)\:\:(2,-2,5) \end{array} $

Equation of the line through $P(3,-4,-5) \:\:and\:\:Q(2,-3,1)$ is given by
Any point $A$ on this line in terma of $\lambda$ is $A(\lambda+2,-\lambda-3,-6\lambda+1)$
Let this point $A$ be the point where the line crosses the plane $2x+y+z=5$
$\therefore$ the point $A$ satisfies the eqn. of the plane.
$\therefore $ The point $A$ is (1,-2,7)$
