It doesn't mention divided roads, so I (incorrectly) said False.

I've always stopped for buses letting kids off. What did I need to know in order to answer True?
Badly written question. I would have disputed that question since a multi-lane highway may or may not have a physical divider. If the divider is not listed one has to assume that it's not divided and must stop.

Kind of written obscurely but I presume they are asking if you feel you should stop if on a road larger than two lane. It should make mention of the bus using indicator lights. Truly it could be broken down on the side of the road lol.

I can't recall ever seeing school buses stopping on multi-lane (and not divided) roads. That said, if I came up on one letting kids off on a 4-lane, I'd stop. You're saying the same thing, right?

If driving on a divided highway, I don't stop. That bus driver knows that all kids will be heading to the shoulder on that side of the highway.
