When you solve (x^2-25)/(x+5), you get that the top factors to (x+5)(x-5), which cancels out with the bottom to get x-5, so you know that the line must be y=x-5. Since (x+5) canceled out, the x-value for the hole is x=-5. Plugging that in to the line y=x-5 yields (-5,-10) which results in the answer being the **bottom right graph**, which you selected.
