The two lines of regression are $ x+2y-5=0$ and $ x+3y-8=0$. The coefficient of correlation between $x$ and $y$ is

$\begin {array} {1 1} (A)\;-0.82 & \quad (B)\;0.82 \\ (C)\;-0.72 & \quad (D)\;0.76 \end {array}$

$ x=-2y+5$
$ \Rightarrow r_1 = -2$
$ y = -\large\frac{1}{3}x+\large\frac{8}{3}$
$ r_2= -\large\frac{1}{3}$
$ r^2=r_1 \times r_2$
$ r^2 = -2 \times -\large\frac{1}{3}$
$ = \large\frac{2}{3}$
$ r = -0.82$
