Hint: In order to subtract the following \[0\] from \[ - \dfrac{3}{8}\]. The method of subtracting two numbers or quantities is known as subtraction. The minus sign is the symbol we use to denote subtraction in mathematical form. By this method, we can get the required solution.

Complete step-by-step answer:
Subtraction is the term used to describe how one or more numbers are subtracted from another.
Subtraction can also be used to figure out how far two numbers differ.
The opposite of addition is subtraction. We suggest reading our addition page if you've not already.
In this problem,
We are given the subtraction of two numbers: \[0\] from \[ - \dfrac{3}{8}\] .
A subtraction operation is denoted by the minus sign ‘\[ - \]’ , then
We can simplify the question.
Subtract the following, \[0\] from \[ - \dfrac{3}{8}\]
\[ = 0 - \dfrac{3}{8} = - \dfrac{3}{8}\]
Therefore, \[0\] from \[ - \dfrac{3}{8}\] \[ = - \dfrac{3}{8}\]
So, the correct answer is “\[- \dfrac{3}{8}\]”.

Note: When a number is subtracted from itself, the result is \[0\], so when a real number is subtracted from a smaller real number, the result is a negative real number.
Real-number subtraction can naturally be applied to complex numbers.
Subtraction is an arithmetic operation that represents the operation of removing objects from a collection.
However, when we are performing a subtraction, we need to take extra care with the order of the numbers.
Usually with a subtraction, we write the number we are subtracting from first, and the numbers we are taking away in any order after that.
There are 3 parts to a subtraction problem:
The ‘\[ - \]’ sign can be used as many times as needed:
For example, \[7 - 5 = 2\].
Here, \[7\] is the minuend, and \[5\] is subtrahend and \[2\] is the difference.
