### What is the function of the differential?

• A.

To turn power through 90 degrees

• B.

To support Crown-Pinion

• C.

• D.

To provide for speed difference between the two wheelends

D. To provide for speed difference between the two wheelends
Explanation
The function of the differential is to provide for speed difference between the two wheelends. The differential allows the wheels on the same axle to rotate at different speeds, especially when the vehicle is turning. This is important because the outer wheel needs to travel a greater distance than the inner wheel during a turn. The differential allows for this speed difference, ensuring smooth and efficient operation of the vehicle.
