The standard representation for a decision in a flow chart is a diamond, answer B.

Typically the decision will be in the form of a “yes/no” question. Each different decision (yes, no, etc.) will represent a line coming from one of the different points of the diamond.

The other answer choices and what they represent are as follows:

  1. A rectangle  represents a process
  2. An oval represents a start/end point
  3. A parallelogram represents an input or output
