ANSWER AND EXPLANATION:
The correct answer is B
Explanation: Risk Transference requires shifting some or all of the negative impact of a threat, along with the ownership of the response. A fixed price contract may transfer risk to the seller, whereas a cost-plus contract may transfer cost risk to the buyer.
