The correct answer is B.

As per PMBOK® Guide 5th Edition

The estimated activity resource requirements will have an effect on the duration of the activity, since the level to which the resources assigned to the activity meet the requirements will significantly influence the duration of most activities. For example, if additional or lower-skilled resources are assigned to an activity, there may be reduced efficiency or productivity due to increased communication, training, and coordination needs leading to a longer duration estimate.


Work Package is the work defined at the lowest level of the work breakdown structure for which cost and duration can be estimated and managed.
As we move towards execution, quality and availability of information gets increased for the work, we had planned at higher level form.So WBS is decomposed at different levels as per availability of information. When the decomposition of upper levels of WBS components to the level where duration and costs are estimated with reasonable degree of confidence is not possible, the further decomposition is performed when these details gets available and deliverables of these higher level components gets agreed.


Refer to Page 167 of PMBOK® Guide 5th Edition
