      Cost

    • B.

      Quality

    • C.

      Effort

    Correct Answer
    B. Quality
    Explanation
    Quality is not normally considered in risk control because risk control focuses on identifying and managing potential risks that may impact the success of a project or activity. Factors such as cost and effort are commonly taken into account when implementing risk control measures, as they directly affect the resources and time required to mitigate risks. However, quality is typically managed separately through quality control processes, which ensure that products or services meet the required standards and specifications. While quality is important for overall project success, it is not directly related to risk control.
