The problem in this situation is the car coming from the right (car B). Because there are no other road signs that indicate otherwise, you have the obligation to give way, in accordance with the priority-to-the-right rule.

Run-through of the alternative answers:

  • Yes, because car A is turning left.
    – Wrong. You have an obligation to give way to car B. You cannot therefore increase your speed and overtake car A on its right-hand side.

  • No, because overtaking on the right-hand side is forbidden.
    – Wrong. Overtaking must “take place to the right when the driver of the vehicle ahead is turning left or is clearly preparing such a turn”. (Road Traffic Ordinance)

  • No, because overtaking after a pedestrian crossing is forbidden.
    – Wrong. Overtaking is permitted after a pedestrian crossing, but not before or at a pedestrian crossing.

  • No, because overtaking at a junction is forbidden.
    – Wrong. There is an exception: “An overtaking manoeuvre may not be performed immediately before or at a junction, except when [...] the overtaking is performed to the right”. (Road Traffic Ordinance)

  • No, because I have an obligation to give way to car B.
    – Correct. Because there are no road signs that indicate otherwise, you have the obligation to give way, in accordance with the priority-to-the-right rule.
