The correct answer to this question is C, Second gear than first gear, then emergency brake. A brake going out in a car can be scary, but it is best not to panic. This is because there are steps that can be taken to prevent a crash and stop the car. First, the driver should gradually switch gears.

They should first switch to second gear. Then, when the car slows down, the driver should switch to the first gear. From there, they should use the emergency brake to bring the call to a halt. Once they do so, they may here the tires lock.
