Answer and Explanations:

Answer A: Incorrect. The team and the relevant project stakeholders define the definition of done, which applies to every item in the backlog. The team, however, does not determine when a product or a product increment is complete.

Answer B: Correct.  The product owner accepts the completed product increment in the iteration review meeting after reviewing the acceptance criteria and verifying the functionality.

Answer C: Incorrect. The sponsor can recommend product backlog items to the product owner, but a sponsor typically does not have the authority to accept or reject a product.

Answer D: Incorrect. The agile coach may facilitate the meeting where the product increment is reviewed. Accepting or rejecting the product, however, is not among the agile coach's responsibilities.
