Focus  =  (-8, -3)

Directrix  x = - 2

 

This parabola opens to the left because the focus is to the left of the directrix

For this reason....we can throw out answers B and D.....these parabolas open up/down

 

The  vertex is  [ (-8 - 2)/2, -3)  =  ( -10/2, -3)  =  (-5, -3)

 

We can stop here

 

"C"   has  a vertex of (-5, -3)   and the presence of the " - "  in front of the "12" indicates that this one opens to the left
