Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is C.

The scope management plan specifies how to create the work breakdown structure (WBS) from the detailed project scope statement and how the WBS will be maintained and approved.

Details for each option:

A. Project scope statement
Incorrect. The project scope statement is the description of the project scope, major deliverables, assumptions, and constraints. It does not contain any process or guidelines.

B. Requirements traceability matrix
Incorrect. The requirements traceability matrix links product requirements from their origin to the deliverables that satisfy them.

C. Scope management plan
Correct. The scope management plan is a component of the project or program management plan that describes how the scope will be defined, developed, monitored, controlled, and verified.

D. Requirements management plan
Incorrect. The requirements management plan describes how requirements will be analyzed, documented, and managed. It focuses on requirement management and does not provide guidelines on how to create the work breakdown structure.
