Yes the correct answer is B.

PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition defines Characteristics of the Project Life Cycle as

Projects vary in size and complexity. All projects can be mapped to the following generic life cycle structure-> Starting the project, Organizing and preparing, Carrying out the project work, and Closing the project.
A project may be divided into any number of phases. A project phase is a collection of logically related project activities that culminates in the completion of one or more deliverables.


The phase structure allows the project to be segmented into logical subsets for ease of management, planning, and control. The number of phases, the need for phases, and the degree of control applied depend on the size,complexity, and potential impact of the project. The closure of a phase ends with some form of transfer or hand-off of the work and is known as phase gate.

Refer to Page 38-42 of PMBOK® Guide 5th Edition
