  1. PMP Solution 3

    Contract award is the point at which the buyer and the seller sign the contract. On the other hand, contract breach is a failure lacking legal excuse to perform a promise of the contract. Contract termination is the end of the contract with at least one of the parties still having open obligations. The point of total assumption is the point where sharing relationship changes to a share ratio of 0/100. At this point the seller assumes 100% of the cost risk. Therefore, correct answer is d).
