    Answer:

    \large\boxed{B)\ -\dfrac{1}{2}}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    -(-6x-5)=4(5x+3)\qquad\text{use the distributive property}\\\\-(-6x)-(-5)=(4)(5x)+(4)(3)\\\\6x+5=20x+12\qquad\text{subtrac 5 from both sides}\\\\6x=20x+7\qquad\text{subtract 20x from both sides}\\\\-14x=7\qquad\text{divide both sides by (-14)}\\\\x=-\dfrac{7}{14}\\\\x=-\dfrac{1}{2}
