Which of the following is the safest place to be during an earthquake?

under a very strong table
In a basement
In a large truck
Under a car

I have never been in an earthquake, but I have been in a tornado. I hid in a basement, but tornadoes aren't earthquakes. I think the answer is under a very strong table, am I correct?
