But if look into benefit of WBS as per your handout then ur answer is correct. So below paragraph in your handout reflect all your answer and clear the confution.

Because here it is asked that "WBS as Management tool" means what a mangement can take benifit of this

Benifit of WBS

Using a WBS provides a number of benefits to the management and to the development teams.

First, it gives the management an idea about the size and complexity of the project. Second, it helps in planning, scheduling, and monitoring a project realistically. This is possible because all the tasks in the project can be preformed measurable targets for each task.

To aid planning, scheduling, and monitoring a project, you can use tools such as:

– Program Evaluation and Review Techniques (PERT)

– Critical Path Method (CPM)

– Timeline charts

– Gantt charts

These tools use WBS as the fundamental basis for assessing resources to tasks, computing the number of days needed, and the cost required to complete the tasks.
