    When your car slides to the right, it is necessary to turn your car to the right in order to regain control and correct the slide. This will help in aligning the car's direction with the intended path and prevent further sliding or veering off course. Turning the car to the right will also help in counteracting the forces causing the slide and stabilize the vehicle.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    What do you do if you car stalls?

    • A.

      Shift to neutral and start engine

    • B.

      Turn on and shift to park

    Correct Answer
    A. Shift to neutral and start engine
    Explanation
    When a car stalls, it means that the engine has stopped running. To restart the engine, shifting to neutral is necessary as it disengages the engine from the wheels, allowing it to freely rotate. This prevents any strain on the engine when starting it again. Once in neutral, the driver can then start the engine by turning the key or pressing the start button. Shifting to park is not the correct action in this situation as it is meant for when the car is stationary and already turned off.

      Emergency flashers

    • B.

      Use a floodlight

    • C.

      Use a flashlight

    Correct Answer
    A. Emergency flashers
    Explanation
    If your headlights don't work, using the emergency flashers is a good solution. Emergency flashers are designed to provide a warning signal to other drivers when your vehicle is stationary or moving slowly. By activating the emergency flashers, you can increase your visibility on the road and alert other drivers to your presence. This is especially important in low-light conditions or during emergencies when your headlights are not functioning properly. Using a floodlight or flashlight may provide temporary illumination, but it is not a practical or safe long-term solution for driving at night.
