Its a bit difficult to choose.

Option C is ofcourse the best option.
However even in Parametric estimates there can be 2 ways of doing it.
a. Doing parametric estimates after completing certain amount of work in the project,
For e..g. It took two months for the completion of 1 km of road, so in project we estimate how m much it will take to complete 100 kms of road (to keep it simple we are not considering efficiency gain through repetitive tasks)
b. It took one of the previous project 90 months to complete 50 kms of road with X amount of resources , so for my project i can estimate 180 months for 100 Km of road (with similar amount of resources in project)

So option D can also be right

I think exam will not be confusing.

Option 3 is the best choice.

Thank you.
