RECALL: A horizontal line has an equation of the form $y=k$, where $(0, k)$ is the line's y-intercept. Almost all horizontal lines do not have an x-intercept since they do not touch or cross the x-axis. The only horizontal line that touches or crosses the x-axis is $y=0$ which is actually the x-axis itself. Thus, the given statement is false.
