The following PMP® exam sample question is taken from the Free PMP Exam Simulator at http://free.pm-exam-simulator.com - The answer is at the very bottom:

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.
