$- 2$

#### Explanation:

This is all one term, but there are different operations being done.

$\left[6 - {\textcolor{red}{\left(12 - 8\right)}}^{2}\right] \div 5$
=[6-color(red)((4)^color(blue)(2)] div5
=$\left[\textcolor{\lim e}{6} - \textcolor{b l u e}{16}\right] \div 5$
=$\textcolor{\lim e}{- 10} \textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{\div 5}$
=$\textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{- 2}$
