The right option is A 13
The sum of a number and its additive inverse is equal to zero. The additive inverse of an integer is obtained by reversing the sign of the integer while its numerical value remains same.
For instance, 14 is the additive inverse of -14.
Hence, additive inverse of -13 is -(-13) = 13.
