Answer:

As below.

Explanation:

#y = 4 tan(x/2)#

#"Standard form of the function : " y = A tan (Bx - C) + D#

#A = 4, B = (1/2), C = D = 0#

#"Amplitude " = |A| = 4, "but NONE for tangent function"#

#"Period " = pi / |B| = pi / (1/2) = 2pi#

#"Phase Shift " = -C / B = 0#

#"Vertical Shift " = D = 0#
