Q24. What happens to the rpm of the engine when you shift a gear down? this answer you gave of RPM increase is wrong, you worded the question " when you shift a gear down" you have to take your foot off the accelerator, then engage the clutch to shift down, during this shift time the RPM decreases, your question should not state shift it should say when you engage a lower gear, only when the lower gear is selected will the RPM of the engine increase.
