A) y + 1 = -2(x – 5) B) y -5 = -2(x – 1) C) y – 1 = -2(x – 5) D) y – 5 = -2(x + 1)

Point slope: \(\large y-y_1=m(x-x_1)\) \((x_1, y_1)\) m=slope

Well, look at it this way. Plug your Y coordinate in as Y1 to get Y-5=m(x-x1) Then plug in your slope. Y-5=-2(x-x1) Then plug in your x coordinate to get Y-5=-2(x-1)
