Answer and Explanation:
The Correct Answer is B.
The use of virtual teams creates new possibilities when acquiring project team members. Virtual teams can be defined as groups of people with a shared goal who fulfill their roles with little or no time spent meeting face-to-face. The availability of electronic communication such as e-mail, audio conferencing, web-based meetings, and video conferencing has made such teams feasible. Noise is anything that interferes with the transmission and understanding of the message (e.g. distance, unfamiliar technology, lack of background information, etc.). Noise is the biggest concern for virtual teams.
