Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is B.

When identifying stakeholders, the organizational process assets (OPAs) can provide very useful input. OPAs provide strategies, guidelines, templates for stakeholder management as well as lessons learned and sample stakeholder lists from previous projects. Stakeholder registers from previous projects would be part of the corporate knowledge base.

Details for each option:

A. Project documents
Incorrect. Project documents are created as the result of project activities but are not a repository of historical information about previous projects.

B. Organizational process assets
Correct. Stakeholder registers from previous projects are considered historical information, which is a part of the organizational process assets.

C. Enterprise environmental factors
Incorrect. As stakeholder registers from previous projects are historical assets of the organization, they are not considered enterprise environmental factors.

D. Project charter
Incorrect. Although the project charter could provide some helpful information on internal or external parties for identifying stakeholders, the charter is not a repository of historical information from previous projects.
