    Correct Answer
    B. Windscreen, wing, boot and rack.
    Explanation
    The letter that includes only car parts is "windscreen, wing, boot and rack." This is because all the items mentioned in this letter are commonly associated with cars. The windscreen is a part of the car's front window, the wing refers to the car's fender, the boot is the trunk of the car, and the rack could refer to a roof rack or bike rack commonly found on cars.

    • D.

      British, British, international and American English.

    Correct Answer
    D. British, British, international and American English.
    Explanation
    The given answer is British, British, international and American English. This is because the terms "number plate" and "windscreen" are commonly used in British English, while "blinker" is an American English term for the same car part known as "indicator" in British English. The term "trunk" refers to the rear storage compartment of a car, and is predominantly used in American English, whereas in British English it is referred to as the "boot". Therefore, the order in which the terms are listed corresponds to the respective English variations.
