B
Explanation:  B) The flaw in problem-solving teams is that though they are productive in reaching goals and making decisions, they lack the authority to have their decisions impact the organization as a whole. For example, if a problem-solving team determines that its parent company should buy carbon offset credits, the team lacks the power to enforce that decision. These factors taken together make "lack the authority to implement their decisions" the correct response and make "avoid making decisions" and "have full authority to implement their decisions" incorrect responses. The remaining choice is an incorrect response because it describes a self-managed work team, not a problem-solving team.
