Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is B.

Resource leveling is a resource optimization technique in which start and finish dates are adjusted based on resource constraints with the goal of balancing demand for resources with the available supply. Resource leveling can be used when shared or critically required resources are only available at certain times, or in limited quantities, or over-allocated. Resource leveling can often cause the original critical path to increase.
