Yes the correct answer is A.

Verification and Audit ensures that composition of a project’s configuration items is correct and the Functional requirements defined in the configuration documentation have been met and NOT "Configuration identification for a Configuration Item(CI) will meet specified program needs." as mentioned in the question

PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition Defines Configuration Management as

A subsystem of the overall project management system. It is a collection of formal documented procedures used to apply technical and administrative direction and surveillance to: identify and document the functional and physical characteristics of a product, result, service, or component; control any changes to such characteristics; record and report each change and its implementation status; and support the audit of the products, results, or components to verify conformance to requirements. It includes the documentation, tracking systems, and defined approval levels necessary for authorizing and controlling changes.

Some of the configuration management activities included in the Perform Integrated Change Control process are as follows:
• Configuration identification
• Configuration status accounting.
• Configuration verification and audit.
