    ROFL.  The first pair had me thinking there were two brakes for each driver, somehow. The "both" ought to apply to drivers, not brakes.  The brakes of both drivers; both drivers' brakes.  It ought to be "each" driver's brakes though, I think.  They do not share the same brake or brakes, they each have their own brakes.

    First should be A and the second should also be A.  womens is not a word, ever, so you can never write " womens' " anything. women is a plural of woman.  No ess.
