This question is asking next best step hopefully as none of the option below would have avoided the situation, not sure what mock are you taking?

A. Try to find another customer - not an option
B. Raise a change request - This is critical issue and has to be first reported, CR will follow
C.Escalate the issue to higher management - This is the next best step
D.Talk to customer and rebaseline. - needs to be at later stage

Hi Manish,

the question is asking what PM would have done to avoid the situation. I think PM should have an alternate plan B right ,
is my thinking correct.But options does not specify anything like that..Depending on the situation how to trace back the questions like ' WHAT WOULD HAVE PM DONE TO AVOID THE STUATION'.

Not able to solve these situations any trick please.

there are many ways to avoid situations, regular audits, meeting with suppliers etc and capturing this as a risk.
I must recommend not to spend time on such mock tests.
