The correct option is;

Force of Friction

Explanation:

As coach Hogue rode his motorcycle round in circle on the wet pavement, the motorcycle and the coach system tends to move in a straight path but due to intervention by the coach they maintain the circular path

The motion equation is

v = ωr and we have the centripetal acceleration given by

α = ω²r and therefore centripetal  force is then

m×α = m × ω²r = m × v²/r

The force required to keep the coach and the motorcycle system in their circular path can be obtained by the impressed force of friction acting towards the center of the circular motion.
