You have only been given 10 resources and there are no more resources available in the company, The Project should be completed in a period which is half the time that will take you to complete the project with the available resources.

Asking for overtime and work in the weekends( Not Mentioned) are against PMI Code of Ethics.
On job Training ( Not mentioned PMP exam should be clear that ) is the possible right choice!
Sometimes made up an answer just missed some information which can clear the right choice.
In that case, PMI should scrutinize the answer and questions with special attention.

ANS: 3 (Cut the scope)

Time and Cost are constraints, hence, PM should priorities the requirements and deliver only the high priority requirements

Use the process of elimination.

1.Relax some Quality Requirements - Quality cannot be compromised, hence eliminated
2.Provide the available resources with some training to increase their performance - Competancy is not the issue, hence eliminated
3.Look for any part of the scope that can be cut
4.Ask your available resources to work overtime - PMI doesn't promote overtime.

Hence, C

From the above ans shall be 4.

May comes under PMBOK Schedule compression, crashing - to shorten the schedule duration, overtime can be approved when activities are on critical path.

I believe Option D will be the right choice.
I was also thinking about option B, but that again requires an additional budget for training and I didn't see any data that tells us about the reserve that project had planned for training.
