    y=-10 is the equation of a horizontal line. What is the slope of a horizontal line?

    No you're right its 0. Vertical lines have undefined slope. Now, if its a horizontal line with all y coordinates as -10, where do you think its gonna cross the y axis?

    Right, and there will be no y intercept.
