Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

Developed by the Lantrac Group of Companies, Hemel Hempstead, Hens, a new multi-purpose three-wheeler is now in full production. While designed for cross-country operations, it is suitable for normal town and country work. Special Lypsoid low-pressure tyres give a large ground contact area, spread over three tracks, which aids traction flotation on a soft surface. The vehicle has a length and width of 10ft and 9ft 9in. respectively, can carry a payload of 4 ton and has a top speed of 45 mph. It is powered by a Reliant 700 c.c. four-cylinder petrol engine and torque is transmitted through a four-speed gearbox, while a fuel consumption of up to 45 mpg is claimed.

The body is of the self-tipping type and mechanical details include an hydraulically damped front suspension having a coil spring and a radius-arm rear suspension with Aeon rubber springs. The Lantrac can be supplied for export in ckd form and the kit can be assembled by two men with simple equipment. It is said to be ideal for operations in deserts, in deep mud, and over scrubland and snow-covered slopes.
