Hi Syed,

Please find the answers below as per the SME.

Q1) Explanation: The question is asking 'During which of the following process groups should you continually compare and monitor project performance against the baseline so that the corrective actions can be taken and implemented as soon as necessary’, which means it should be done while you are doing the work, which, is in the execution process group. And, another thing we do is manage/perform quality assurance where we keep checking if we are following the processes or not and take necessary steps to realign or implement corrective measure. Also, corrective action is something which is going to the root cause of the error and eliminating that. Seven basic quality tools are also part of manage quality assurance which also falls under execution process group.

Q2) The Answer is (B). This question is related to changing contents of presentation and not related to updating sender list, specific format etc (which is in Manage Comm)

Explanation: B is correct as ‘project reporting’ is one of the tools and technique under manage communications. And this scenario looks like a project reporting..also, the output of this process is project communication.

Q3)
The answer is C. But i thought it was (C). Please clarify

Explanation: Look at the slide of manage team and its definition. This screenshot is from page number 345 of PMBOK 6th edition

I am sure this helps!
