Solution :-

(i) \(\frac{2}{8}\)

Additive inverse = -\(\frac{2}{8}\)

(ii) \( -\frac{5}{9}\)

Additive inverse =\( \frac{5}{9}\)

(iii) \( \frac{-6}{-5} = \frac{6}{5}\)

Additive inverse = \( \frac{-6}{5}\)

(iv) \( \frac{2}{-9}\) = \( \frac{-2}{9}\)

Additive inverse =  \( \frac{2}{9}\)

(v) \(\frac{19}{-6} = \frac{-19}{6}\)

Additive inverse = \(\frac{19}{6}\)
