You are driving on a slippery road, in a car that does not have Anti-lock Brakes (ABS). If your car starts to skid sideways when you step on the brake, you should take your foot off the brake, unless you are about to hit something and steer in the direction of the skid to straighten your car. Then brake gently.

When driving under these conditions with no ABS brakes it is not recommended to hit the brakes precisely for the slippery conditions that can cause an accident or getting you out of the road. Although the first impulse would be trying to stop the car, you better take your foot off the break and try to straighten the car, try to steer in the direction of the skid and watching the road for more vehicles, start to brake gently. This is the general recommendation to avoid accidents.

The other options of the question were A) Continue pressing firmly on the brake, and steer in the direction you want to go, B) Quickly apply the parking brake to try to straighten the car, and C) Then release the parking brake, and push gently on the brake pedal.
