    B. The student improperly applied the addition property of equality in the second step.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We are given j - 6 = - 10. The final answer should be j = - 4 after adding 6 to both sides, but the student got j = - 16. This means that she added wrong. So the answer should be B; she improperly added 6 to both sides (she subtracted 6).
