Additive inverse of a number(or fraction, in this case) is a number which when added to it, gives 0(which is the additive identity).

It is basically the negative of the given number.
cuz $a + \left(- a\right) = 0$

Therefore, additive inverse of $\frac{5}{7}$ is $\frac{- 5}{7}$
$\left[\text{as } \frac{5}{7} + \frac{- 5}{7} = 0\right]$
