Answer and Explanation
The correct answer is B

In this scenario, the project sponsor requested a document that provides specific information about the product requirements of your current project. The requirements traceability matrix is a grid that links product requirements from their origin to the deliverables that satisfy them. Typical attributes used in the requirements traceability matrix may include a unique identifier, a textual description of the requirement, the rationale for inclusion, owner, source, priority, version, current status, and status date. Additional attributes to ensure that the requirement has met stakeholders' satisfaction may include stability, complexity, and acceptance criteria.

Details for each option:

A. The requirements management plan
Incorrect. The requirements management plan is a component of the project management plan that describes how requirements will be analyzed, documented, and managed. The requirements management plan does not have detailed information regarding each of the product requirements.

B. The requirements traceability matrix
Correct. The requirements traceability matrix is a grid that links product requirements from their origin to the deliverables that satisfy them. Typical attributes used in the requirements traceability matrix may include a unique identifier, a textual description of the requirement, the rationale for inclusion, owner, source, priority, version, current status, and status date. The document the sponsor is requesting is the requirements traceability matrix.

C. The scope management plan
Incorrect. The scope management plan is a component of the project management plan that describes how the scope will be defined, developed, monitored, controlled, and validated. The scope management plan does not contain the details the project sponsor is seeking, making this an incorrect answer.

D. The work breakdown structure (WBS)
Incorrect. The WBS is a hierarchical decomposition of the total scope of work to be carried out by the project team to accomplish the project objectives and create the required deliverables. The WBS represents the project work in work packages and does not provide the details of the document the sponsor requested.
