Moliner’s Answer :

A. No

The laws of physics and geometry are different when you are in reverse. It is impossible for the wheels to follow the same tracks that they made when pulling into the driveway.

Conventional Answer:

D. Yes

If you replay turning into the driveway in reverse (turn the steering wheel in the same places by the same amount, but in the opposite direction), the wheels will follow the same path.
