You are managing a software development project. The project will involve working with a remote team. One of the
requirements is to set up a secure communication link. The lead-time to setup the link is 45 days. Since the initial phase of the
project involves requirements gathering, you feel that the link is required only after 3 months and are planning accordingly. You
would typically do this planning activity in:
A. The Conduct Procurements process
B. The Define Activities process
C. The Plan Procurement Management process
D. The Control Procurements process

Manish, That's what I have selected but According to Scordo it's Plan Procurement. I don't have a single clue in this Q that activities are related to procurement.

This had no logical/rationale link with procurement :)

May be because of the first sentence... you are managing 'software development' project. So setting up secure communication link is not something that your project staff will do, nor that it is something which is your organization's core business area. So may be, you will outsource this scope of work. That's how it will be part of procurement management...

That is a too much of wild guess, too much of assumptions and over imagination may land you in selecting wrong option.

Managing software project does not mean that other functions in organization are not capable of securing communication link.
