- B.
A network is a graphic portrayal of independency relationship among the activities of a project.

- C.
An arrow representing an activity can have any length and shape.

- D.

- 4.Which of the following is not a rule of network construction?
- A.
Each defined activity is represented by one and only one arrow.

- B.
A network should have only initial and one terminal node.

- C.
Identical initial and final nodes can identify two activities.

- D.
Only as few dummy activities should be included as is warranted.

- 5.Mark the wrong statement.
- A.
Forward pass calculations yield the earliest and the latest start and finish times of various activities.

- B.
The difference between the latest and the earliest finish times is the total slack

- C.
Backward pass determines the latest start and the latest finish

- D.
Determination of the earliest and the latest start time of various activities of a project is useful for proper planning of their execution.

- 6.Mark the wrong statement.
- A.

- B.
A project network may have none, one, or more critical paths.

- C.
A delay in critical activity surely delays the completion of project.

- D.
Each critical activity has identical earliest and the latest start times.

- 7.Which of the following is not correct in respect of PERT calculations?
- A.
Expected time of an activity is a weighted average of three times estimates, a, m, and b with respective weights of 1, 4, and 1.

The target time minus the expected time divided by standard deviation is the z value

- C.
The completion of project using PERT method follows normal distribution

- D.
The sum total of variances of critical activity times gives the variance of the overall project completion time.
