Hello everyone! Here is this week's free PMP® exam sample question from the PM Exam Simulator.

A project is 50% completed during the implementation phase. You decide to validate the scope of the tasks completed so far. Which of the following tasks will you not perform?

A. Inspect deliverables
B. Analyze variances
C. Recommend defect repair
D. Obtain formal acceptance of deliverables from customer

HINT: One of the tasks belongs to the Control Scope process.

All our questions are updated to the latest A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) standard.

Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is B.

In this scenario, you are planning to perform the Validate Scope process, not the Control Scope process. Control Scope Process is the next step after scope validation. Inspecting deliverables, recommending defect repair, obtaining formal acceptance of deliverables from the customer, are among the actions performed during the Validate Scope process. Only analyzing variances is not performed during the Validate Scope process (it's performed during the Control Scope process), and therefore this choice is the correct answer.
