Which of the following statements are true regarding Control Account ?
A. It is used as a Tool and Technique in Activity Definition process.
B. Used to estimate cost at a level lower than the work package.
C. Used to control costs of the project.

A is the correct answer.

Control Accounts are used to provide a cost estimate at a level higher than the work package.They are used a s a technique in activity definition process.They are not used to control costs of the project and neither in Integrated change control.So the correct answer is option A.

What is the source? This is bad question, Control account is not a T and T,
A control account is a management control point where scope,
budget, and schedule are integrated and compared to the earned value for performance measurement. A control
account has two or more work packages, though each work package is associated with a single control account
