B.) Mitigate the risk

• C.

C.) Transfer the risk

• A.

A.) It calculates a statistical average of the probable outcome of risk events.

• B.

B.) It requires a risk-neutral approach.

• C.

• B.

B.) Flowchart

• C.

• D.

### Question 7: Which of the following statements regarding the Perform Qualitative Risk Analysis and the Perform Quantitative Risk Analysis processes is correct?

• A.

A.) The Perform Quantitative Risk Analysis process assigns relative probabilities while the Perform Qualitative Risk Analysis process assigns numerical probabilities to the project risks.

• B.

B.) The Perform Qualitative Risk Analysis process assigns relative probabilities while the Perform Quantitative Risk Analysis process assigns numerical probabilities to the project risks.

• C.

C.) The Perform Qualitative Risk Analysis process is a mandatory process to be performed on every project, while the Perform Quantitative Risk Analysis process is an optional process.

• D.

D.) The Perform Quantitative Risk Analysis process is a mandatory process to be performed on every project, while the Perform Qualitative Risk Analysis process is an optional process.

B. B.) The Perform Qualitative Risk Analysis process assigns relative probabilities while the Perform Quantitative Risk Analysis process assigns numerical probabilities to the project risks.
Explanation
Explanation: No process in the PMBOK Guide is mandatory. Every project team can determine which processes need to be applied to a specific project. The difference between these processes is that the Perform Qualitative Risk Analysis process assigns relative probabilities to the project risks, while the Perform Quantitative Risk Analysis process assigns numerical probabilities to the project risks.
