They are asking for a maximum steady state current amplitude. That implies it has settled to a "natural frequency" or resonance.

I am sorry? The driver is just oscillating potential. However, if you are asking literally what nationality is the driver? I have no idea, maybe made in Japan or Germany? lol

Man, the thing is that I derive the formula and it is (D). If it is (C), then it seems that the resistance has no effect of the amplitude, which is not true. The resistance acts as a damping factor. I bet ETS is wrong.
