I believe its choice #1. It's definitely not #2 or #4 - They are technically called catalyst monitors. --- The passenger side bank on a forward facing engine, or the bank closest to the firewall on a transverse mounted engine, is bank number 1, so the forward / upstream sensor on that bank would be "bank 1, sensor 1." --- The driver's side bank (forward facing mount engine), or front bank (transverse engine) would be bank number 2, thus the forward / upstream sensor on that bank would be "bank 2, sensor 1," and the rearmost / downstream sensor on that bank would be "bank 2, sensor 2."

kos the motor sits sideways as I already tried to explain. yes it is the left front sensor but the person is asking which one that is, and from the list of choices he has. "left front" is not an option. he wants to know if its on the front manifold or the rear since the since the motor sits sideways in the vehicle.
