The correct answer is option D.
When driving through a curve, you should slow down, ease of the accelerator and if necessary, the brake. Shift to a lower gear so you have enough power to accelerate through the curve. Use your accelerator gently until you reach the mid – point of the curve, pushing down on the accelerator if you want the vehicle to go outside of the curve. Ease up on the accelerator if you want the vehicle to go the inside of the curve. Once you reach mid – point of the curve, unwind the steering wheel and accelerate out of the curve.
