Correct Answer: D

If the time an Agile project team member has available is not 100% fully dedicated to one project, then the team member is said to be fractionally assigned. Fractional Assignment is particularly common in organizations where an individual is assigned to one or more projects simultaneously. This makes it extremely difficult for the individual to focus and achieve their maximum productivity on either project, and is not considered an Agile Project Management best practice.
