What a dumb question. Really doesn't teach you much about science or mechanics.

Gasoline engines are heat engines...as are diesel.

It makes even less sense given this is a Biology class. Last I checked engines aren't living organisms.

if you look at it through one complete stroke of the engine, the majority of heat is produced AFTER the spark ignites the mixture. it's one of those questions that could be interpreted several ways and you could probably make an argument as to why any of the answers could be correct. the key is to figure out which answer THEY want.
