Yes the correct answer is D.
Most of the PMP® aspirants get confused in the middle of the study of Procurement contract which reduces their chances of clearing the PMP® exam with a good score.

“When we talk about procurement, we are required to think like a buyer even though we are a seller”
The 3 types of contracts are
1. Fixed price- having a fixed scope upfront
2. Cost reimbursable- it is a type of contract where in buyer has to pay the cost involved in their service or goods plus any fee- whatever is the seller spending is reimbursable
3. Time and material- where a seller provides timely and professional service or some goods at a specified rate
