    "if drving..." or "from driving"

    Hi, there,
    Last week I took a TOEIC test and ran into such a question as:

    EMPLOYEES must purchase THE CARD through the vender ( ) driving THE CAR.

    (a) whereas
    (b) if
    (c) even
    (d) from

    What comes to the blank?
    The capitalized wrods are the ones I am not sure to remember exactly.

    Thank you.

    I cannot see the use of "the" with "car" in this sentence. It should be "a", unless there is something in the context of other sentences to indicate that it was a special car.

    The answer to the question does not depend on this though .

    Employees must purchase the card through the vendor, if (they are) driving a car.
