Correct answer

  • increase your speed and change lanes.
  • stop and move toward the right edge of the roadway.

(Note: The laws on this are a bit different in some other states. In some states, you do not have to slow down if you can move into a non-adjacent lane. When traveling out of state, always check the local traffic laws.)
