What is the equation of the line that has a y-intercept of 5 and is parallel to the line represented by the equation below?

2x - y = 16

A. y = 2x + 5
B. y = -2x + 5
C. y = 1/2x - 5
D. y = -1/2x - 5

I guessed B for this one, but another choice of mine was A. I'm not sure which one to pick.

Thank you, Steve

y = 2 x - 16 is original so slope = 2
y = 2 x + b
when x = 0, y = 5
so
y = 2 x + 5 which is A
