      Straight

      Wankel

    Correct Answer
    B. Inboard
    Explanation
    The term "inboard" refers to a type of engine placement where the engine is located within the hull of a boat or the body of a car, rather than being mounted externally. In contrast, "straight," "inline," and "Wankel" are all types of engine configurations. Therefore, "inboard" is not an engine type, making it the correct answer.

    Due to their smaller and more lightweight construction, straight/inline engines are the preferred engine design for________ cars.

    Correct Answer
    FWD, Front Wheel Drive, Front-wheel drive
    Explanation
    Straight/inline engines are the preferred engine design for FWD cars because they are smaller and lighter, making them easier to fit into the limited space available in the front of the vehicle. FWD cars have the engine located in the front, which means that the engine needs to be compact in order to maximize interior space. Straight/inline engines have a simpler design compared to other engine configurations, such as V-shaped or boxer engines, which makes them more space-efficient. Additionally, the lighter weight of straight/inline engines helps to improve the overall fuel efficiency and handling of FWD cars.

This driveline system is designed to automatically distribute power between the front and rear wheels based on road conditions, ensuring optimal performance in various driving situations. AWD offers improved handling, especially in adverse weather conditions, making it a popular choice among modern vehicles.

However, due to challenges with fuel efficiency and emissions, Mazda discontinued the RX-8 and has not produced another car with a rotary engine since then.
