thank you sunku - this guy is really confusing - he is saying it is 'validate scope' which is no way for me.
it was given accuracy is the objective and hence 'perform quality assurance' is right even for me.So better be careful with these sample test papers in 'pmpforsure' website.Any coments from any on this ?.

I feel the Answer is Validate Scope and Inspection is T&T in Validate Scope

(Inspections: measuring, examining, and verifying including reviews, audits and walkthroughs)

Sekhar,Sunku,

The answer there is 'Validate scope'.ok Sekhar !!let us go by you that the tools and techniques of 'validate scope' matches with what given the question and asper you wrote but then why it should be said in the beginning of the question the below powerful statement.

"You are a project manager of a manufacturing company and for you accuracy has the highest importance". which means 'accuracy' mean 'measure of correctness' by definition of quality - so over all 'control quality' makes sure the deliverables are 'correct' and 'validate scope' makes it for 'acceptance'.Now please tell me - which option we choose and why ?.

Ohh !! This question looks tricky - 'Control quality' is not given in the options at all.so 'validate scope' could be the answer. But this question is double twisted - initially saying 'accuracy' and later 'acceptance' ( objective of validate scope ) and tools of validate scope.So please comment.

May be the question wants to point out that if one chooses validate scope - it covers through Control quality - as this process is input to validate scope. But very tricky - it is difficult to answer in such short time.

The question is about which process group performs - measuring, examining, and verifying including reviews, audits and walkthroughs ?
Answer is simple Validate scope.

It is important to understand the tone of question and develop answer based on it.

"In order to meet the product acceptance criteria you have to perform several activities...." Remember this line, this is not definitely in Control Quality.
Generally reviews, audits and walktroughs done in Executing.

Straight forward logic:

Validate Scope is done by the customer. Here the question is saying " You have to perform several activities such as measuring, examining, and verifying including reviews, audits and walkthroughs". The answer is clearly Quality Assurance since quality assessment and quality control are weird answers.

Answer is Validate Scope.
Based on practice questions so far - I have reazlied first or more sentences always included to confuse people - Asking part of Q is always defined in last sentence.
