A)
Answer : $\;i$
Explanation :
$i^{-39} = i^{-4 \times 9-3}$
$= (i^{4})^{-9} \;. i^{-3}$
$ = (1)^{-9} \; . i^{-3} \qquad [i^{4} =1]$
$ = \large\frac{1}{i^{3}} = \large\frac{1}{-i} \qquad [i^{3} =-i]$
$ = -\large\frac{1}{i} \times \large\frac{i}{i}$
$= \large\frac{-i}{i^2}$
$= \large\frac{-i}{-1} \qquad [i^{2} =-1]$
$ = i$
