Answer: (d)- Internal expanding shoe brake

The brake commonly used in motor cars is an Internal expanding shoe brake.


The internal expanding shoe brake consists of two brake shoes with an outer surface lined with high thermal tolerance friction material. The high friction coefficient prevents material from wearing away during braking action. The friction force between the brake shoes and the brake drum produces braking torque and reduces the speed of the drum.

Internal expanding shoe brakes are widely used in motor cars and light trucks.
