Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is D.

It can be inferred from the question that the process of acquiring resources is being performed. One of the outputs from the Acquire Resources process is physical resource assignments. Documentation of the physical resource assignments records the material, equipment, supplies, locations, and other physical resources that will be used during the project. Based on the description provided by the question, the physical resource assignments is what has been accomplished.

Details for each option:

A. Resource histogram
Incorrect. Resource histogram is a bar chart showing the amount of time that a resource is scheduled to work over a series of time periods. The question does not describe any type of chart being produced.

B. Resource management plan
Incorrect. The resource management plan provides guidance on how project resources should be categorized, allocated, managed, and released. The question describes the process of acquiring project resources. The resource management plan is used as an input into the Acquire Resources process and is not an output as implied in the question.

C. Resource assignment matrix
Incorrect. 'Resource assignment matrix' is a fake term made up for this question.

D. Physical resource assignments
Correct. Documentation of the physical resource assignments records the material, equipment, supplies, locations, and other physical resources that will be used during the project.
