I'll go with D. It is the job of the SM do make the team including the PO aware of the Agile principles and mindset. Option A doesn't really communicate the agile principles to the PO but is merely an authoritative way of communicating ( not recommended in Agile). Option B is against the Agile principles since there are no detailed budgets and schedules and these are artifacts of the predictive project management. Option C leaves the resolution to the issues on hand to the retro which is done after the sprint, leaves it too late so incorrect. Option D is a direct and most suitable option without wasting any time. I would go with D.

I assume that C is the best answer. Scrum Master should coach team and the company about agile methods and mindsets. Answers A and D just poing P.O. to some solution without coaching. Answer C explains and coaches P.O. about agile methods.

C is absolutely wrong as retrospective is for what is going well, where could use improvements, and what should be done differently. For me A is the best choice for this approach.

It should be A, retrospective is not a meeting to explain the team approach
