A. if your passengers are not in danger

B. If you are towing a water skier

C. At night only

D. During the day only

Answer: A. if your passengers are not in danger.

Explanation

The safety of your passengers always comes first, while the time of day or the fact that you are towing a water skier won’t affect this safety, thus the answer needs to be A.

As a boat operator, you can begin assisting victims of an accident as soon as you are confident that your passengers are no longer in danger.

Your main goal is to eliminate or avoid the risk for so long as there is still danger.
