Configuration versus Change Management Systems

Dears,
From my understanding, change control system was part of the configuration control system, itself being part of the PMIS.
What I also understood, is that the configuration system purpose was to track the updates of the documents to be sure the latest version is available.
And, now, with this example of question, I have doubt...

The question is: Configuration management involved which of the following as related to project management:
A: A system used to store versions of software code
B: A system used to store versions of documentation on a project
C: A piece of an automated Project Management system used to set up project variables
D: A through Change Control System to ensure the project produces the desired results

I answered B, but the answer is D....unfortunately..
What did I miss?
Thanks

This is how PMBOK defines Configuration Management System

Configuration Management System. A subsystem of the overall project management system. It is a collection of formal documented procedures used to apply technical and administrative direction and surveillance to: identify and document the functional and physical characteristics of a product, result, service, or component; control any changes to such characteristics; record and report each change and its implementation status; and
support the audit of the products, results, or components to verify conformance to requirements. It includes the documentation, tracking systems, and defined approval levels necessary for authorizing and controlling changes.

for this question we can go with strategy of elimination since initial two B is right but it is not the only thing done by configuration management system. Here is another video you may like to refer on Configuration Management
