This answer should be the context diagram. It defines and clarifies the boundaries of system software.

Ans is context From BABOK Page 253 - KEYWORD SCOPE OF A SYSTEM Are excellent ways to define the scope of a system and all of the systems, interfaces, and user interfaces that attach to it. Allows for estimation of the effort needed to study the work.

The ANS is Context. - The Context Diagram shows the system under consideration as a single high-level process and then shows the relationship that the system has with other external entities (systems, organizational groups, external data stores, etc.).

D: Context Diagram A context diagram, sometimes called a level 0 data-flow diagram, is drawn in order to define and clarify the boundaries of the software system. It identifies the flows of information between the system and external entities. The entire software system is shown as a single process. A sequence diagram shows object interactions arranged in time sequence. It depicts the objects involved in the scenario and the sequence of messages exchanged between the objects needed to carry out the functionality of the scenario.

Correct. Sequence diagrams are also often used to show how user interface components or software components interact. Pg 341. A context diagram can reveal high-level interfaces between human actors, organizational units, business processes, or other solution components. Pg 288

Context is the right answer. It defines the boundaries of a system, which is the key word here.
