Answer and Explanation:

The Correct Answer is C.

When you are performing the Close Procurements process, you are closing out work performed by a seller for a contract. To do that there are a few things for you to do:
1) You verify that all of the work and deliverables are acceptable
2) You finalize any open claims
3) In case of early termination, you follow the termination clause in the contract.
On the other hand, when you are performing the Close Project or Phase process, you are finalizing all of the various activities that you perform across all of the process groups. You are also verifying that the work and deliverables are complete.
