    Please help me understand why options A or D are incorrect? A,B, and D all seem plausible, so why B?

    A - He is also going through the influence of risks on project objectives => Manage risks?
    D - He is collecting information on cost, schedule, and level of quality =? Monitoring and controlling?


    A project manager in an MNC corporation is in the process of collecting, organizing, and disseminating information on how project resources are being used to complete project objectives. In addition, he is collecting information on cost, schedule, and level of quality. He is also going through the influence of risks on project objectives. Which process is the project manager in?

    Direct and Manage Project Work
    Manage Communications
    Earned Value Technique
    Monitor and Control Project work
    Correct Option:B

    This is a great question! What is going on? Our PM is collecting, organizing, and disseminating information, right? Certainly, they are also collecting cost, schedule and quality information, and looking at risk.

    "Where am I in which process?" can be answered by understanding what inputs Manage communications is using - such as the risk register, quality document/s, cost and schedule documents.

    Read the scenario again - "...in the process of..." The collection of the information is in support of this.
