Yes the correct answer is B.

Prototype technique is used in "Collect requirement" process of "Project Scope Management" Knowledge area

PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition defines Prototyping as

A method of obtaining early feedback on requirements by providing a working model of the expected product before actually building it. Since a prototype is tangible, it allows stakeholders to experiment with a model of the final product rather than being limited to discussing abstract representations of their requirements.

Prototypes support the concept of progressive elaboration in iterative cycles of mock-up creation, user experimentation, feedback generation, and prototype revision. When enough feedback cycles have been performed, the requirements obtained from the prototype are sufficiently complete to move to a design or build phase. Storyboarding is example of prototyping technique.
