The deliverables as well as the schedule baselines of your project have been changed three times. Which of the following is MOST LIKELY the cause of the changes?
 
1. The lack of clear instructions from project sponsor.
 
2. Incomplete project management plans.

3. The lack of a signed-off project charter.

4. Incomplete project scope management plans

I will choose option 2. Incomplete project management plans

Project Charter is high level documents and don't have detailed deliverables or schedule baseline.

Although incomplete scope management plan can also have ripple effect in changing deliverables and schedule baselines.

Its not necessary to match your thought process with each mock test, finally the PMI is the one who is gona take final call , each writer (including me :-) ) may have some different view for things

Change in deliverable mean unstable scope, which in turn resulting in change of schedule, since it is getting baseline which shows PM and team is doing replanning and sponsor is approving the replanning again and again.

Now look for options
1. The lack of clear instructions from project sponsor.
 
Could be the reason that is why he is ok for replanning.

2. Incomplete project management plans.

I am not getting any clue where it shows that project management plan was incomplete and that is resulting in change, rather question is saying we have baselines

3. The lack of a signed-off project charter.


No reason to believe this

4. Incomplete project scope management plans


This could be the reason since the change is happening in scope , but since we have approval of baseline i prefer selective option 1.
