Shouldn't it be written 'words' in sentence c?

If the subjects are connected by OR, the verb used will be singular And All the sentences that begin with EACH, EVERYONE and ANYONE will have a singular verb.

Every motorist know right not knows?

Since "Every" is treated as singular, "knows" is correct :-).

I think it's 'every motorist who knows'. That is not used here because the motorist is a person and not a thing.
