Yes Sarthy the correct answer is option D.
Change Request is a very sensitive term in the Project Management. In spite of you working hard to complete your project as per scope, schedule and cost as a project manager, inevitable thing always occurs which is referred to as a Change.
Refer to page 94, 136 (5.6) of PMBOK® Guide 5th Edition

As a result of working through activities and producing your product, service, or result, you
will inevitably come upon things that need to be changed. Changes can also come about from stakeholder requests, external sources, technological advances, and so on. These change requests might encompass schedule, scope, requirement, or resource changes. The list really could go on. Your job as project manager, if you choose to accept it, is to collect the change requests and make determinations about their impact on the project.
