Which of these statements about tankers and their center of gravity is true?

A Both of the above
Explaination
Tank vehicles have a high center of gravity, typically five or six feet above the ground. This makes a tanker top-heavy, which makes it more prone to rollovers than other types of vehicles. Tests have shown that a tank vehicle can roll over at the speed limits posted for curves. To take an upcoming curve safely, slow down well below the posted speed limit.
B Much of the load's weight is carried high up off the road.
C Tankers can turn over at the speed limits posted for curves.
