The answer to this is letter C. What are procurements? This is the process of having to obtain something such as resources. There are instances when the project manager knows from where the resources can be taken but they do not know how they are going to acquire the resources from that place. All of the other choices will have an effect on the project. If there are not enough resources, the creation of the new products will be halted.

If the project’s cost would be too high, there may be some changes that need to be done in order to push through with it. The scope can also be a problem especially if it becomes too challenging for the people who are working on the task.

The correct answer to this question is C. The hardest part of a project manager's job is managing the constraints. There are six contraints of a project that influence each other: scope, quality, cost, resources, risk, and time.

If resources are not available, the time to deliver will increase, which can usually result in the increase of project cost because alternate resources are usually more costly. If the quality of the project is decreasing, more resources may be required, which will increase the cost, as well as the time to deliver.

If scope creep occurs on the project, the time, cost, and resources will increase, and the quality will most likely decrease, causing an increased risk on the delivery.
