    We have the expression - 1 (2x + 3) - 2 (x - 1).

    Distribute the - 1 across the 2x and 3.

    -1 (2x + 3) - 2 (x - 1) = - 2x - 3 - 2 (x - 1)

    Now distribute the 2 across the x and - 1.

    -2x - 3 - 2 (x - 1) = - 2x - 3 - 2x + 2

    Combine like terms.

    -2x - 3 - 2x + 2 = - 4x - 1

    So, D - 4x - 1 is the answer.
