Solve for y: \[y = 2x  4\] So y intercept is (0, 4) This narrows it down to the last two choices. The x intercept is (2,0) because the definition of xintercept says that y is 0.

x intercept is when y =0 2x0=4 x=2 so x intercept is (2,0)

If it confuses you, I would either plot it by hand or use something like wolframalpha. It's easier to understand with a picture: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=2x++y+%3D+4
