Yes Sarthy the correct answer is option D.

Refer to page 247of PMBOK® Guide 5th Edition
Quality audits are independent reviews performed by trained auditors or third-party reviewers. The purpose of a quality audit is the same as the purpose of the Perform Quality Assurance process—to identify ineffective and inefficient activities or processes used on the project. These audits might examine and uncover inefficient processes and procedures as well as processes that are not in compliance with organizational practice

Hi Jyoti , following to the PMBOK definition it also denotes "Quality audits are independent reviews performed by trained auditors or third-party reviewers"

so why cant the answer be "B. They must be third-party staff. "

Hi Prem,

The reason for why B is not the correct answer is that Option B says "auditor must be third-party " whereas as per PMBOK

"Quality audits are independent reviews performed by trained auditors or third-party reviewers"

it means "auditor can be third-party and not must be" . The quality reviewer has to be a trained auditor but not necessarily be third-party, he/she can be internal.
