The correct answer is B.

OBJ-2.5: Spear phishing attacks are crafted to target a specific person or group of people. In this example, you are targeting the sales team with an email. This allows you to create an email that they are more likely to open based on the subject line and its content. Smishing (SMS phishing) is a phishing attack in which the attacker entices their victim through SMS text messages. If the messages are sent by text message, then the attack is considered smishing. Whaling is an email-based or web-based form of phishing that targets senior executives or wealthy individuals. Pretexting is a social engineering tactic where a team will communicate, whether directly or indirectly, a lie or half-truth to get someone to believe a falsehood.
