Toolbox:
For a given probability distribution.
With random variable $X$ taking value $x_{i}\; i=1,2,\dots$
$E(X)=\sum p_{i}x_{i}$
and $p_{i}$ are the corresponding probability.
$ \begin{array} {llllllll} \textbf{X:}& -4& -3& -2& -1& 0 \\ \textbf{P(X):}& 0.1& 0.2 &0.3& 0.2& 0.2 \end{array}$
$E(X)=(-4)(0.1)+(-3)(0.2)+(-2)(0.3)+(-1)(0.2)+0(0.2)$
$=-0.4-0.6-0.6-0.2-0$
$=-1.8$
$'D'$ option is correct.
