A

Correct Answer: 
Yes

B

Correct Answer: 
No

C

Correct Answer: 
No

D

Correct Answer: 
No

The question asks how Philipp's friend is portrayed. The friend says “...ich verstehe nichts von Autos.” (I don't understand anything about cars.) The correct answer is therefore (A) Als unsicher (As uncertain). The dialogue does not portray Philipp's friend (B) Als unfreundlich (As unfriendly), (C) Als hilfsbereit (As helpful), or (D) Als sorglos (As careless), so these choices are incorrect.
