Hi Jyothi/Swathi, ParametricPlot[{5,y},{y,-4,6},AspectRatio->Automatic,GridLines->Automatic]; (* Just play with the above command choosing any functions for x or y, you have an automatic grid plotting available, for example: *) ParametricPlot[{y^2 - 4y +3,y},{y,4,-1},AspectRatio->Automatic, GridLines->Automatic]; ParametricPlot[{x^1 - 4x^3 +3,x},{x,1,-1},AspectRatio->Automatic, GridLines->Automatic];
