### Which AWD/Differential mode is most appropriate for driving on a basic grass field?

• A.

All Wheel Drive

• B.

2 Wheel Drive with Differential Locked

• C.

2 Wheel Drive with Differential Unlocked

• D.

Doesn't Really Matter

C. 2 Wheel Drive with Differential Unlocked
Explanation
2 Wheel Drive with Differential Unlocked is the most appropriate mode for driving on a basic grass field. This mode allows power to be distributed evenly between the two wheels, providing better traction on the grass. The unlocked differential allows the wheels to rotate at different speeds when turning, which is important for maneuverability on uneven surfaces. All Wheel Drive may not be necessary on a basic grass field as it distributes power to all four wheels, which may not be needed for this type of terrain. 2 Wheel Drive with Differential Locked is not suitable as it locks the differential, causing both wheels to rotate at the same speed, which can lead to poor traction and difficulty in turning.

### Which AWD/Differential mode is most appropriate for driving on wet pavement?

• A.

All Wheel Drive

• B.

2 Wheel Drive with Differential Locked

• C.

2 Wheel Drive with Differential Unlocked

• D.

Doesn't Really Matter

B. 2 Wheel Drive with Differential Locked
Explanation
Driving on wet pavement requires good traction to prevent slipping and sliding. The most appropriate AWD/Differential mode for this situation would be 2 Wheel Drive with Differential Locked. Locking the differential ensures that both wheels on the same axle receive equal power, which improves traction on wet surfaces. All Wheel Drive may distribute power to all wheels, but it may not provide the same level of traction as locking the differential. 2 Wheel Drive with Differential Unlocked may result in power being distributed unevenly, leading to reduced traction. "Doesn't Really Matter" is not a suitable option as the mode of AWD/Differential does make a difference in wet pavement conditions.

### True or False -- If you are in particularly muddy / slippery conditions and the rear wheels start spinning you should immediately engage the AWD mode.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Engaging the AWD mode immediately when the rear wheels start spinning in muddy/slippery conditions is not the correct approach. AWD mode is designed to provide better traction and stability in such conditions, but engaging it abruptly can cause further loss of control. It is recommended to ease off the accelerator and allow the vehicle to regain traction naturally. Additionally, adjusting driving techniques, such as reducing speed and avoiding sudden movements, can help maintain control in these conditions. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

Rate this question:

• 19.

### Which of the following steps must be completed before engaging AWD?

• A.

Place the gear selector in neutral.

• B.
