### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Simplifying −9 – (−8) = −9 + 8

**Step 2:**

**Rule:** If the numbers are of opposite signs, find their difference and put the sign of the greater number.

Difference of [9, 8] =9 – 8 = 1;

**Step 3:**

Sign of greater number is (−).

So, − 9 – (−8) = −9 + 8 = −1

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Simplifying 6 – (−7) = 6 + 7

**Step 2:**

**Rule:** If the numbers are of same sign, we add them and put their sign on the sum.

Sum of [6, 7] = 6 + 7 = 13;

**Step 3:**

Sign of numbers is +.

So, 6 + 7 = +13

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Simplifying −9 – (−4) = −9 + 4

**Step 2:**

**Rule:** If the numbers are of opposite signs, find their difference and put the sign of the greater number.

Difference of [9, 4] = 9 – 4 = 5;

**Step 3:**

Sign of greater number is (−).

So, −9 – (−4) = −9 + 4 = −5

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Simplifying −7 – (−7) = −7 + 7

**Step 2:**

**Rule:** If the numbers are of opposite signs, find their difference and put the sign of the greater number.

Difference of [7, 7] = 7 – 7 = 0;

**Step 3:**

So, −7 – (−7) = −7 + 7 = 0

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Simplifying 6 – (−5) = 6 + 5

**Step 2:**

**Rule:** If the numbers are of same sign, we add them and put their sign on the sum.

Sum of [6, 5] = 6 + 5 = 11;

**Step 3:**

Sign of numbers is +.

So, 6 – (−5) = 6 + 5 = +11

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Simplifying 8 – (−3) = 8 + 3

**Step 2:**

**Rule:** If the numbers are of same sign, we add them and put their sign on the sum.

Sum of [8, 3] = 8 + 3 = 11;

**Step 3:**

Sign of numbers is +.

So, 8 – (−3) = 8 + 3 = +11

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Simplifying −8 – (−6) = −8 + 6

**Step 2:**

**Rule:** If the numbers are of opposite signs, find their difference and put the sign of the greater number.

Difference of [8, 6] = 8 – 6 = 2;

**Step 3:**

Sign of greater number is (−).

So, −8 – (−6) = −8 + 6 = −2

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Simplifying 6 – (−10) = 6 + 10

**Step 2:**

**Rule:** If the numbers are of same sign, we add them and put their sign on the sum.

Sum of [6, 10] = 6 + 10 = 16;

**Step 3:**

Sign of numbers is +.

So, 6 – (−10) = 6 + 10 = +16

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Simplifying 7 – (−9) = 7 + 9

**Step 2:**

**Rule:** If the numbers are of same sign, we add them and put their sign on the sum.

Sum of [7, 9] = 7 + 9 = 16

**Step 3:**

Sign of numbers is +.

So, 7 – (−9) = 7 + 9 = +16

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Simplifying −11 – (−3) = −11 + 3

**Step 2:**

**Rule:** If the numbers are of opposite signs, find their difference and put the sign of the greater number.

Difference of [11, 3] =11 – 3 = 8;

**Step 3:**

Sign of greater number is (−).

So, −11 – (−3) = −11 + 3 = −8
