All B.

Except 2 if you're describing the drive, as in "The drive was slow."

Would "Speak as slow as you can" be wrong ?

Thanks, Wonko. I have a feeling that I have seen a sign saying "School Ahead Go Slow". Is it a strange way to use "slow"?

Thanks for the help, everyone. "Go slow" is a special case, it seems.
