    D. 57
    Explanation
    The quarterback completed a pass for 23 yards, so the ball advanced from the home team's 20-yard line to the opponent's 43-yard line (20 + 23 = 43). The running back then ran a touchdown, which means he covered the remaining distance from the opponent's 43-yard line to the end zone. Since the touchdown is scored when the ball crosses the opponent's goal line, the running back ran for 57 yards (43 + 57 = 100, which is the length of the field).
