Answer:

graph{-cosx -1 [-5, 5, -2.5, 2.5]}

Explanation:

It is important to learn what the graphs of #y=sinx# and #y=cosx# look like;

The graph of #y=cosx# is as follows;
graph{cosx [-5, 5, -2.5, 2.5]}

So, the graph of #y=-cosx# is the above graph inverted
graph{-cosx [-5, 5, -2.5, 2.5]}

And, the graph of #y=-cosx-1# is the above graph translated 1 unit down
graph{-cosx -1 [-5, 5, -2.5, 2.5]}
