Correct. Comparing actual project performance against the project management plan is performed during the Monitor and Control Project Work process.

C. Analyzing change requests and either approving or rejecting them
Incorrect. Analyzing change requests and either approving or rejecting them occurs during the Perform Integrated Change Control process rather than the Monitor and Control Project Work process.

D. Gaining formal acceptance of the deliverables by the customer or sponsor
Incorrect. Formal acceptance of deliverables is gained during the Validate Scope process as opposed to the Monitor and Control Project Work process.
