Which vehicle(-s) is/are NOT likely to be visible to the truck driver?

A Car B

Trucks have large blind spots, called No-Zones. A car traveling in a No-Zone may be completely hidden from the truck driver's view. A car driving beside or slightly behind a truck's cab can easily disappear into one of these blind spots. The truck's side mirrors provide only small arcs of visibility down the sides of the truck. Here, Car A should be visible through the truck's windshield, and Car C should be visible in the truck's right side mirror. But Car B is in one of the truck's No-Zones. Remember, if you can't see the truck driver, he or she probably can't see you. [No-Zones, C. Large Trucks, Section VII - Sharing the Road, Maryland Driver's Manual]
