$\left(0 , - 1\right) , \left(4 , 0\right)$

#### Explanation:

When this line crosses the y-axis the corresponding x-coordinate at this point will be zero. Substituting x = 0 into the equation of the line will give the value of the y-coordinate.

$\Rightarrow y = \left(0.25 \times 0\right) - 1 = 0 - 1 = - 1$

$\Rightarrow \left(0 , - 1\right) \text{ is point on the y-axis}$

Similarly when the line crosses the x-axis the corresponding y-coordinate at this point will be zero. Substituting y = 0 into the equation gives the value of the x-coordinate.

$\Rightarrow 0.25 x - 1 = 0 \Rightarrow 0.25 x = 1$

$\Rightarrow x = \frac{1}{0.25} = 4 \Rightarrow \left(4 , 0\right) \text{ is point on the x-axis}$

$\text{Plot (0,-1),(4,0) }$ on square paper and draw a straight line through them.
