I think the best answer is B (become familiar with the appropriate standards), though this question appears weak in that none of the answer options actually seem to be “right.” This sometimes occurs on the actual exam, in which case you simply eliminate the worst answers.

Reviewing the bylaws, rules and regulations (A) and reviewing the policies and procedures (D) are definitely incorrect, so these may be eliminated immediately. Further, setting up any committee (C) does not seem to be the correct answer in this case. Hence, you are left with answer option B, which may be rationalized—one needs to know what the standards are about before applying for accreditation.

I suspect the level of difficulty of this question can be raised, i.e. the quality of the question can be improved, to make it more realistic.

Hope this helps!
