(A) the creation of a new job
(B) the dispatching of a task

(D) the creation of a new process
Explanation: fork() creates a new process by duplicating the calling process, The new process, referred to as child, is an exact duplicate of the calling process, referred to as parent, except for the following :
The child has its own unique process ID, and this PID does not match the ID of any existing process group.
The child’s parent process ID is the same as the parent’s process ID.
The child does not inherit its parent’s memory locks and semaphore adjustments.
The child does not inherit outstanding asynchronous I/O operations from its parent nor does it inherit any asynchronous I/O contexts from its parent.
