Answer:

There is no #x#-intercept.

The #y#-intercept is #(0,-2)#

Explanation:

The line #y=-2# is a horizontal line.
It passes through the #y#-axis at #(0,-2)#

The value of #y# stays the same, regardless of which #x#-value is used.

There is no #x#- intercept, because:

  • the line is horizontal
  • on the #x#-axis, #y=0#, this is not possible because #y=-2#
