As I always recommend, do not look for ready answer,
try to answer by yourself based on your reasoning and then we can debate.

this is a very simple question.

B. Showing calendar dates for each work packages.
C. Showing the functional manager for each team member.
D. Showing the business need for the project.

I used the process of elimination for solve this
C is wrong because it refers to the Human Resource knowledge area and planning phase
D is eliminate because it is initiation phase and Create Project Charter

I later eliminated B, while the WBS package have some information, such as duration and cost, it does not dates.

So, A
