Answer:

Amplitude = 1 and Period = #2pi#

Explanation:

Standard form of equation is
#y=sin (bx +c) + d#

Where amplitude = a, Period = -(2pi)/b, phase shift = -c/b.

Given equation is #y=sin(x) - 6#

#a = 1, b = 1, c = 0, d = -6#

Therefore, #amplitude = a = 1#

#Period = (2pi)/b = (2pi)/1 = 2pi#

Phase shift = #-c/b = 0#

Vertical shift #= d = - 6#
