It's useful to know that a slope of 1 will produce a line that goes at a 45 degree angle. It will also pass through a series of points in which x and y are the same, i.e. (4, 4), (27, 27), (-11, -11), etc.

The picture shows a slope that appears more steep than a 45 degree angle. Verifying that it is in fact steeper, we can compare the line with the point (3, 4). A line drawn through the origin to the point (3, 4) would go upwards more than it went rightwards, so would be steeper than a slope of 1. This slope is steeper than that. Thus, the answer is A.
