Yes Reeves the correct answer is option D.

Refer to page 548 of PMBOK® Guide 5th Edition

Path Convergence is a relationship in which a schedule activity hasmore than one predecessor.
The precedence diagramming method (PDM) is what most project management software programs use to sequence activities. Precedence diagrams use boxes or rectangles to represent the activities (called nodes). The nodes are connected with arrows showing the dependencies between the activities. This method is also called activity on node (AON).
