Confused with the answer of this question,can anyone explain?

Two members of a team are disagreeing about the right electric parameters for testing a newly designed chipset. Who is in the best position to help resolve this issue?

1.Project Manager

2.Project Sponsor

3.Functional Manager



My answer was Project Manager but correct answer is Funcional Manager as the issue needs Functional Expertise.How do we address such kind of questions in exam where in this case PM can recommend the team to contact experts?

I think since its technical issue, PM is not the best person to comment. Only in few countries like India PM Is expected to be Technical like developers.

Most people its common sense that PM will not be best person for technical answers

There will be more items for the new PMP guides. - Green Water Technologies
