If a continuous function $$f$$ defined on the real line $$R$$, assumes positive and negative values in $$R$$ then the equation $$f(x)=0$$ has a root in $$R$$. For example, if it is known that a continuous function $$f$$ on $$R$$ is positive at some point and its minimum value is negative then the equation $$f(x)=0$$ has a root in $$R$$.
Consider $$f\left( x \right) = k{e^x} - x$$ for all real $$x$$ where $$k$$ is real constant.

The line $$y=x$$ meets $$y = k{e^x}$$ for $$k \le 0$$ at

A
no point
B
one point
C
two points
D
more than two points
