C. Stated in broad terms to allow for flexibility

Explanation:

During the briefing, incident objectives will be presented to all the people involved as the main goal of the operation. Flexibility is allowed in finding methods/ways to achieve the goals, But flexibility cannot be allowed in determining the goal itself.

Stating the objectives in broad terms to allow flexibility only creates the risk of confusion, which make team members have different ideas of what needed to be achieved.
