Correct Answer: D
Distributed teams cannot experience osmotic communication since not all team members are located in the same physical space. Although caves and common area, as well as pair programming, assume co-location, the definition of osmotic communication dictates that teams be co-located. Being located near each other and in the same physical environment enables knowledge to be shared and absorbed more easily as though through osmosis.
