A

Correct Answer: 
No

B

Correct Answer: 
Yes

C

Correct Answer: 
No

The question asks why the woman prefers the black car. She says parce qu'elle ne consomme pas autant d'essence ("because it doesn't use as much gas"). Therefore, (B) Elle est plus économique ("It's more economical") is the best answer. (A) indicates that the car is more attractive and (C) that it's faster; these are not the reasons the woman gives, so these choices are incorrect.
