Answer:

Option B is correct.

Commutative property is used here.

**Explanation:**

**Commutative Property states that we can add any number in any order, we will get the same result i.e, a+b = b+a.**

let a = -4.8 and b = (3.2+(-1.6))

then, using commutative property we have;

a+b=b+a then,

−4.8 + (3.2 + (−1.6)) = (3.2 + (−1.6)) + (−4.8).
