Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is B.
A project buffer is placed at the end of the critical chain to protect the target finish from slippage along the critical chain. On the other hand, feeding buffers are placed at those points in the chain where tasks that are not on the critical path feed into the critical path. Free buffers and activity buffers are not used in critical chain.
