Re: res ipsa loquitur cases
There is not good answer to your question. The phrase "most used" is vague and doesn't get to the issue.
Res ipsa is about negligence, specifically that harm would not ordinarily have occurred without someone's negligence. It can be used in any type of negligence case.
So throw "assault and battery" and "none of the above" out of your answer choices. Any of the other choices could be correct.
I doubt there have been statistical studies to determine what area it is "most used."
