English Language Tests, Intermediate level

ESL/EFL Test #309 "Warehouse and Logistics", answer 10

When a lift truck tips over, it loses its balance.

Correct answer: (b) loses its balance

Your answer was: incorrect
When a lift truck tips over, it leaks fuel.
_________________________

When a lift truck tips over it doesn't lose its balance but before; it tipped over because it lost his balance.Consequently something else happens after this that's why I wrote: " it leaks fuel."

If the question would have been:Why has a lift truck tipped over because it lost its balance.

I interpreted in this way this question. Am I right?
