Let us know about BODMAS.

BODMAS: BODMAS stands for Bracket, Of, Division, Multiplication, Addition, and Subtraction. ... According to BODMAS rule, the brackets have to be solved first followed by powers or roots (i.e. of), then Division, Multiplication, Addition and at the end Subtraction.

So, we will firstly open the brackets.

(-172) + (-40) + 5 + (-425) + (-275) + 600 – (-15)

= -172 – 40 + 5 – 425 – 275 + 600 + 15

Now, we will segregate the positive integers and the negative integers.

= (-172 – 40 – 425 – 275) + (5 + 600 + 15)

Now, we will add the integers.

= (-212 – 700) + (605 + 15)

= -912 + 620

Now, we will perform subtraction.

= -912 + 620

= -292

So, the answer to this question is (d) -292.

Also, not only for this question, one must use BODMAS rule only for solving such questions as if we will use the BODMAS rule, then only the answer would be correct, otherwise not
