The correct answer to this question is B When everything is done based on the Definition of Done. A sprint backlog is tasks that the Scrum team identifies. This list of tasks needs to be completed during the Scrum sprint. The scrum team owns the Sprint Backlog, and it allows the team to self-manage themselves during the Sprint.

The team can range from three to nine members, and their work is equally split. Scrum is a framework to manage knowledge work. Scrums are mainly associated with software developments, but over time, it has expanded to other fields and standard project teams.

B is the answer to this question. How will you say that things are done when you are sure that there are still one or two things that have not been resolved just yet? To say that something is done means that it should be done completely and the next task can be done. In Definition of Done, the process is already done and the users who are trying it out can already start using it.

This means that the Software can be released and can actually be used. There are times when you think things are done because you have already placed all of the needed items but what if there are some things that you have forgotten? This means that things are not complete yet.

When everything is done based on the Definition of Done

When the item is complete based on the Definition of Done (which means that the end users can use it), and it creates an Increment of working software that is potentially releasable. Note: if all the tasks for an item are complete, it doesnt necessarily mean that the item is complete, because we might have forgotten to add some of the tasks to begin with.####
