    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Explanation
    Scrum is an agile framework that promotes self-organization within teams. By implementing Scrum, teams are empowered to make decisions and manage their own work, reducing the need for a lead to assign tasks and oversee every aspect of the project. This allows the lead to focus on broader strategic goals and support the team when needed, rather than micromanaging their tasks. Therefore, the statement that Scrum eliminates many tasks required of a lead is true.
