Yes it is wrong why to use the negative sign when it is clearly specified that both the cars are moving in the same direction.
the correcty answer should be -30kmph
as relative velocity would be = velocity of B - velocity of A
= 50 - 80
= -30kmph
and direction opposite to the direction of their motion
