Correct Answer: BFG

Explanation:

By using the forecasting tool in Web Access, you can plan the number of Sprints it will take to complete a set of work. The forecasting tool is available only in the Product Backlog, not any of the Sprint Backlogs. Prior to being able to use the forecasting tool, your Product Backlog must have PBI and Bug work items already created with the effort specified.

You can turn on forecasting by clicking the Off hyperlink next to Forecast on the right side of the backlog page. The first time you do this, Web Access prompts you for the Velocity. Using your Development Team’s Velocity, Web Access will add a Forecast column and horizontal lines to the Product Backlog. In the Forecast column, it will display the Sprint that it predicts the PBI or Bug work item will be developed in. Professional Scrum Development with Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 p.165
