Yes the correct answer is D.
PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition defines

Quality and grade are not the same concepts. Quality as a delivered performance or result is “the degree to which a set of inherent characteristics fulfill requirements” (ISO 9000) [10]. Grade as a design intent is a category assigned to deliverables having the same functional use but different technical characteristics.


The project manager and the project management team are responsible for managing the tradeoffs associated with delivering the required levels
of both quality and grade. While a quality level that fails to meet quality requirements is always a problem, a low grade of quality may not be a problem.

It may not be a problem if a suitable low-grade software product is of high quality but it may be a problem if a high-grade software product is of low quality.
