    D. Overhead costs are assigned to activities; then costs are assigned to products.

    Explanation:

    Activity-based costing provides the most precise product costing information because unlike the other methods, it produces information about the activities, the quantities of activities, and the cost of activities that go into producing a product.

    In activity based costing, indirect costs including salaries, utilities, overhead are assigned to activities; then activity costs are assigned to products or other cost objects.
