Nominal group technique (PMBOK p144-145): The nominal group technique enhances brainstorming with a voting process used to rank the most useful ideas for further brainstorming or for prioritization. The nominal group technique is a structured form of brainstorming consisting of four steps: - A question or problem is posed to the group. Each person silently generates and writes down their ideas. - The moderator writes down the ideas on a flip chart until all ideas are recorded. - Each recorded idea is discussed until all group members have a clear understanding. - Individuals vote privately to prioritize the ideas, usually using the scale of 1-5, where 1 is the lowest and 5 is the highest. Voting may take place in many rounds to reduce and focus in on ideas.

What I meant to say is from reading the rita guide book I didn't see majority as a group decision making technique. I saw voting, focus groups, brainstorming, nominal group technique but didn't see majority as an option so that's why answer A) makes sense

Majority was not listed as a decision making technique. The correct answer is A which uses input from the whole group.
