    In 2018 income from continuing operations.

    Explanation:

    A variation in the accounting forecast impacts present and future periods and is not accounted for by repaying earlier periods. The adjustment in the warranty cost estimate is based on new information gained from experience which counts as an adjustment in the accounting estimate. The accounting change is part of continuing operations but is not recorded net of taxes.

    Therefore first option is correct
