Hi Rachel,
stakeholder analysis is, according to the PMBOK, A technique of systematically gathering and analyzing quantitative and qualitative information to determine whose interests should be taken into account throughout the project.
the output of stakeholder analysis is part of the stakeholder management plan which in turn is part of the project management plan.

I would select option C as the best answer. (option A was correct as per the 4th edition however in the fifth edition stakeholder management plan is separated from the communication management plan)

I would like to differ from the option C because managing communicatons itself would need a plan. By the time you are into managing communications/plan, you should have known your stakeholders on who is how. Project Chart. Plan would be probably correct but if Define Scope was given as an option, that would be the right answer as thats when you would analyze your stakeholders from requirements and boundary perspective

answer B in my view

stakeholder analysis is to done before any plan planning process starts i.e.. during identify stakeholders (Initiation process group)
also it is done throughout the project
Please correct me If I am wrong
