Absolute value will turn negatives into their positive 'equivalents', and will leave positives unchanged, so |-4| = 4, |-20| = 20, and |5| = 5. Getting rid of our absolute values we have:

|-4| (|-20|-|5|) = (4) (20 - 5) = 4*15 = 60

Numbers inside the modulus become positive

|-4| (|-20|-|5|) = (4) * (20 -5) = 60

(C)
