"Describe the characteristics of each graph (for example, . . . ., zero or non-zero intercept value)."

I guess a zero intercept value would be if the line is on the point (0,0)/the origin. But what if the line starts at (0,1) or (2,0). Because then the x intercept is zero or the y intercept is zero... Would these be considered as having the characteristic of a "zero intercept value" or a "non-zero intercept value"?
