Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• Manchester-based Daf International has just completed the sale of what it believes to be the world's largest bus to a bus company in the Zairean capital of Kinshasa. The vehicle consists of a standard Daf tractive unit connected to a locally-produced York stepframe trailer with special bus bodywork to provide the capacity for 450 passengers.

Inzal, Dais associate company in Zaire, blocked off the top two gears of the tractor to limit the vehicle's speed to 41.831km/h (26mph).

The finished bus/truck is 18m long and weighs 20 tonnes fully laden. The vehicle has proved to be so successful that a further 55 will be delivered before the end of the year, and a "super" version is being developed which pulls a second trailer to push passenger capacity to more than 500.

LI A specially-adapted Leyland Daf Freighter 11.15 has been supplied by The Crown Suppliers (TCS) to the Property Services Agency (PSA).
