To answer this question one needs to know the 47 processes for time knowledge area they are...the question is speaking to the planning process group, compression is a tool and technique done during the executing and M&C process

Plan Schedule Management---Planning
Defined Activities---Planning
Sequence Act---Planning --which the question mentions
Est Act Resource---Planning ---which is already done though the question does not specifically mentions it
Est Act Duration--Planning --which the question mentions and comes after Est Resources (the qualification or experience of the resource will determine the duration---also note that sequence, est resource and duration may occur concurrently, as well as est act cost)
Dev. Schedule--Planning

So the right answer will be Develop project schedule (C)---I think

I think finalize schedule (Develop schedule) option 3 is the right answer. Schedule Compression is the tools and technique of developing schedule. I think we have develop rough schedule and do the schedule compression as
an iterative process as to adjust.
