Hello can someone clear up a couple things me.

1. Having a hard time comprehending the difference with validate scope and close project/phase with verifying the project and product scope. Which belongs to which.

2. I've seen several procurements questions where a seller tries to bribe you and the answer is either decline the offer and reject their bid or decline the offer but they are still allowed to bid. Which one takes precedence.

1. You validate the scope to gain formal acceptance of the deliverables from the customer. This is often done with the customer to ensure that you met all of their requirements. Validation and verification are often used interchangeably, though we will often use the term verification to refer to internal validation of the scope before presenting the product to the customer. You must perform Validate Scope before you can perform Close Project/Phase.

2. On the actual exam, it will be clear what the answers are to the ethical questions. Choose the answer that is most ethical and conforms best to the PMI Code of Ethics. In this case, rejecting the bid entirely is appropriate.
