Bike merging

Play along! Did you guess correctly?

ANSWER: No, the bike lane gives the cyclist the right of way.

A bike lane gives cyclists the right of way over drivers turning or merging across their lane. Given they arrive at the stop sign together, and the cyclist is proceeding straight through the intersection, the cyclist would have the right-of-way over the driver turning, even without a bike lane.
