The y intercept of a straight line is simply where the line crosses the y axis.

The slope intercept form (y=mx+c) of the given equation `x+3y=-3` is

`y=-1/3x-1` where c=-1 is the y intercept of the equation .

Therefore, the y intercept of the equation is -1.

Hence, the right choice is option d).
