Solving equations,
5x = -10
x=-2.
Using this value of x in either equations, we get y=0
Hence point of intersection is (-2,0) (Option C)

Solving simultaneous equations:
3x+6 = -2x -4
5x = -10, x = -2 and y = 0

Correction Option: C

The above approaches are all correct/valid, but I'll point out that, once we determine that x = -2, we need not actually calculate the y-value, since only one answer choice has an x-coordinate of -2
