(-8, 6) and (-6, 0) are 2 points on the line.

Slope of the line,

$\\ m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\\ \\ m=\frac{0-6}{-6-(-8)}\\ \\ m=\frac{-6}{-6+8}\\ \\ m=\frac{-6}{2}\\ \\ m=-3$

Parallel lines have the same slope.

So, a line parallel to the given line will have a slope of -3.

So, out of the given options the equation of the parallel line is

y = -3x + 3

ANSWER:  y = -3x + 3
