$\begin {array} {1 1} (A)\;-1 & \quad (B)\;-0 \\ (C)\;2 & \quad (D)\;\sqrt 3 \end {array}$

- Equation of a line in the intercept form is $ \large\frac{x}{a}$$+\large\frac{y}{b}$$=1$.

Step 1 :

It is given that the line makes equal intercepts on the coordinate axes.

Hence $a=b$

$ \therefore \large\frac{x}{a}$$+\large\frac{y}{a}$$=1$

$ \Rightarrow x+y=a$

Slope of the above line is -1

Hence A is the correct option.
