Correct Answer: A

Forecasted Velocity is an estimate of Agile project team velocity and is used when it is impossible or impractical to determine how many story points they will need to complete an iteration. This is commonly used on a new Agile project's first iteration since there is no historical data available to help estimate this velocity.
