Answer:

Intercept on #x#-axis is #- 11# and intercept on #y#-axis is #-11#.

Explanation:

Intercept on #x#-axis is formed where #y=0#, hence putting #y=0# in #x-y=11#, we get #x=11#. Hence, intercept on #x#-axis is #11#.

Intercept on #y#-axis is formed where #x=0#, hence putting #x=0# in #x-y=11#, we get #-y=11# or #y=-11#. Hence, intercept on #y#-axis is #-11#.
