We can identify features of \(g(x)=-2x\sqrt{3}-1\) by looking at the function and interpreting the effects.

The "-1" translates the graph downward one unit.

The "2" stretches the graph away from the x-axis by a factor of 2.

The "-2" indicates that a reflection occurred over the y-axis (although this option is non-existent in the answer choices).
