**Hint**: Since two coordinate points are given and we want to find equation of straight line so we can directly use two point formula to find the equation of straight line and the formula is given by

\[\dfrac{{y - {y_1}}}{{x - {x_1}}} = \dfrac{{{y_2} - {y_1}}}{{{x_2} - {x_1}}}\]

**:**

__Complete step-by-step answer__We know that equation of line through two points \[({x_1},{y_1})\] and \[({x_2},{y_2})\]is

\[y - {y_1} = \dfrac{{{y_2} - {y_1}}}{{{x_2} - {x_1}}}(x - {x_1})\]

Since the given equation of the line passes through the points \[( - 1,1)\] and \[(2, - 4)\].

Here, let us take

\[{x_1} = - 1,{y_1} = 1\]

\[{x_2} = 2,{y_2} = - 4\]

Substituting the values in the formula

\[(y - 1) = \dfrac{{ - 4 - 1}}{{2 - ( - 1)}}(x - ( - 1))\]

\[(y - 1) = \dfrac{{ - 5}}{{2 + 1}}(x + 1)\]

\[(y - 1) = \dfrac{{ - 5}}{3}(x + 1)\]

(cross multiply with 3)

\[3(y - 1) = - 5(x + 1)\]

after simplification we get

\[3y - 3 = - 5x - 5\]

rearranging the terms we get-

\[5x + 3y + 2 = 0\]

Hence, the required equation is \[5x + 3y + 2 = 0\]

**So, the correct answer is “ \[5x + 3y + 2 = 0\]”.**

**Note**: we can solve this by using slope intercept form given by \[y = mx + c\], where m is the slope of the given line and c is the y-intercept

First find the slope of the line using the formula

\[m = \]\[\dfrac{{{y_2} - {y_1}}}{{{x_2} - {x_1}}}\]

let us take

\[{x_1} = - 1,{y_1} = 1\]

\[{x_2} = 2,{y_2} = - 4\]

Substituting the values in the formula we get

\[m = \] \[\dfrac{{ - 4 - 1}}{{2 - ( - 1)}}\]

now take any one given coordinate point as x and y that is \[x = - 1,y = 1\] now substituting the values in the above equation we get

\[ \Rightarrow 1 = \dfrac{{ - 5}}{3}( - 1) + c\]

after simplification we get

\[ \Rightarrow 1 = \dfrac{5}{3} + c\]

(shift \[\dfrac{5}{3}\] to left hand side we get)

\[ \Rightarrow 1 - \dfrac{5}{3} = c\]

(taking lcm ,on simplifying we get)

\[ \Rightarrow \dfrac{{ - 2}}{3} = c\]

Now substitute c in equation 1 we get

\[ \Rightarrow y = \dfrac{{ - 5}}{3}x + \dfrac{{ - 2}}{3}\]

\[ \Rightarrow y = \dfrac{{ - 5x - 2}}{3}\]

\[ \Rightarrow 3y = - 5x - 2\] (shifting the terms and rearrange)

\[ \Rightarrow 5x + 3y + 2 = 0\]

Hence, the required equation is \[5x + 3y + 2 = 0\]

And it is same as solution obtained above
