Answer and Explanation:

The Correct Answer is B.

The correct answer depends on the word "obtain" in "obtain formal acceptance".
By the time the Close Project or Phase process happens, you should already have obtained formal, written acceptance for the deliverables. To be precise: Formal acceptance is obtained as part of the Validate Scope process.
In the Close Project or Phase process you only verify/ensure that you have indeed received such a formal acceptance.
Therefore, "Obtaining formal acceptance of all deliverables from all stakeholders will not be performed in the Close Project or Phase process.
