Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is B.
All of the given choices are valid Enterprise Environmental Factors. However, the Project Management Information System will not influence the Estimate Activity Durations process. We do use project management software for scheduling (Scheduling Tools) during the Estimate Activity Durations process but we do not use the Project Management Information System. Conceptually, these two software applications are different and perform different functions. However, you can find a software application that performs both of these functions, e.g. Microsoft Project. For the actual PMP Exam you must remember that these two software applications are different and perform different functions, i.e. one is for reporting and one is for scheduling.
