Option C. Reassigning the released resources or keeping them on bench, or using them for some other purpose is the responsibility of the functional (or line) manager.
All other activities are responsibilities of the resources and PM before they are released from the project. Without completing these activities resources cannot be released from the project.

Answer is given D.

D - Transferring the documented lessons learned into the lessons learned database is not linked with reassigning of project team members or transferring of project equipment at the end of the project. Lessons learned track project successes and failures, which would include factors that led to the project being cancelled. It's important to archive or transfer these records to a lessons learned knowledgebase for reference on future projects. [PMBOK 5th edition, Page 266] [Project Human Resource Management]

I could not find anything on PMBOK 5th edition page 266 in this regard...
In one way this is correct - just transferring the document to the org knowledge base does not need any specific resource.. it can be done by anybody.. even PM can do it. In that sense all other activities are dependent on resources getting release from the project.

my take option C, it is outside the project boundary, though it's true statement.

why not option D, according to PMIsm, we need think to think as a large project, so even transferring the lesson learn seems to small work but PM will not do.

I also selected option C, but the answer was given D.

Since i't Scordo question, may be we should go with D.

Dear all good discussion.

option has to be D

In one of my webinar on project closure I have discussed this as well

A. Documenting the release date for project resources in the project management plan - This is responsibility of PM towards his/her team members and also needed for efficient utilization of resources within organization
B. Transferring project equipment to the regular operations of the company - All resources Human/non human needs to be returned back to whichever department they belong to, if project has purchased some resources project plan will have clear guidelines on which dept within organization this should be returned
C. Reassigning project team members to a new project within the company - This is responsibility of PM towards his/her team members , especially in projectized organization as resources don't have home to go back to, PM has to recommend resources, help find them an assignment
D. Transferring the documented lessons learned into the lessons learned database

I think also the correct option is D, my approach is are four statements are correct, however all first three statements(A,B,C) are related to releasing project resources, the last statement (D) is not related to releasing project resources.
