Not sure the answer is C. If the equation for SV is SV = EV - PV, then to find EV we must move PV on the other side which gives SV + PV = EV ... then the result would be 800 + 7000 = EV = 7800.... SV being positive and not negative in the question.

Looks like typo for the question, should be -800 not 800
From math question will be : SV = EV - PV
Will become EV = -800 + 7000 = 6200

or as above comments (if not typo), EV = 7800
