Answer:

See below.

Explanation:

When #y = asin(bx+c)+d#,

amplitude = #|a|#
period = #(2pi)/b#
phase shift = #-c/b#
vertical shift = #d#

(This list is the kind of thing that you have to memorize.)

Therefore, when #y=2sin(2x-4)-1#,

amplitude = 2
period = #(2pi)/2# = #pi#
phase shift = #-(-4/2)# = 2
vertical shift = -1
