Answer:

Yes, it is.

Explanation:

#y=-x-6# implies #x+y=-6# i.e. the sum of ordinate and abscissa is #-6#

As in all the given points,

#(-10,4), (-8,2), (-6,0), (-4,-2), (0,-6), (2,-8)#

the sum of ordinate and abscissa is #-6#,

these represent the linear relation #y=-x-6#
graph{-x-6 [-16.25, 3.75, -4.2, 5.8]}
