Yes the correct answer is option B.

No project can be executed in vacuum, hence structure of your performing organization can have a major impact on project management. If you are a consulting organizations Project manager, you are probably dealing with influence from performing as well your own organizations structural influence.

Refer to page 20 of PMBOK® Guide 5th Edition

Although individual traits & attitudes of co-workers is not mentioned in PMBOK 6's page 38 but it has link towards employee competencies, capabilities which will impact their productivity & organization's performance as a whole. Hence, it will come under EEF. From all the options, it implies that other options a,b, c are part of EEF whereas option d is part of OPA. I chose option 4 as the answer & got wrong.

Please share your inputs for the clarifications.

Individual traits and attitudes of co-workers cannot be measure as hard skills, its soft skills and cannot be recorded or made public, at the most some of it can be in confidential HR files of the worker.
employee competencies, capabilities on the other hand are hard skills which will be part of EEF
