    Something is not right here.

    You say arc AB = -4x °, but the arc AB would not be measured in degrees.
    Did you mean the central angle subtended by arc AB is -4x° ? That would make sense.

    If so, then the central angle subtended by an arc is twice the angle subtended by the same arc at the circle.
    then
    -4x = 2(-3x - 6)
    -4x = -6x - 12
    2x = -12
    x = -6 , which is one of the choices

    B = 4x + 10
