Its not from any question bank. I had this doubt and made up this myself.
You can consider it as a followup question generated from 'If there is a defect found in deliverable (control scope) - what should a PM do?"

I would like to put my hands at this strange question... the Purpose of developing PMP is to guide and control all the other processes of the project/ product during its life cycle after initiating. one of the PM main roles and responsibilities is to insure the proper implementation of the PMP during the project life cycle (after initiating) and suppose that he has enough power to carry out his duties. in this scenario I think that the answer should contain the following choice
the PM should define the deviation and call the project team for an urgent meeting to strongly advise for complying with the pmp.

I agree. If the team is not following the approved PM Plan then they just need to do it. No need for a Change Request or corrective action, they just need to do what was planned.
