    The correct answer is D.

    When a person exercises external locus of control it means that he attributes his sucesses or failures to external factors rather than to his own merits or mistakes. In this case, Fred, instead of assuming his fault and admitting that he was driving too fast, he blames other factors which are external to his behaviour: signs, GPS, etc.
