The correct answer is B.

OBJ-1.1: During the attack phase, the attacker seeks to gain access to a system, escalate that access to obtain complete control, and then conduct browsing to identify mechanisms to gain access to additional systems. The planning phase is where the assignment’s scope is defined, and management approvals, documents, and agreements are signed. The discovery phase is where the actual testing starts; it can be regarded as an information-gathering phase. The attack phase is at the heart of any penetration test; it is the part of the process where a penetration test attempts to exploit a system, conduct privilege escalation, and then pivot or laterally move around the network. The reporting phase is focused on developing the final report presented to management after the penetration test.
