PERT And CPM Questions: Quiz!

Are you familiar with PERT and CPM, and do you think you can pass this quiz? PERT and CPM are two network-based project management techniques that demonstrate the activities and events' flow and order. PERT stands for Project Management and Review Technique, whereas CBM stands for Critical Path Method, and they are frequently used in research development projects. If you want to learn more about PERT and CPM, this is the quiz for you.

      Crash Project Method

  • 2. 
    Which of the following statements is not correct?
    • A. 

      PERT is probabilistic in nature.

    • B. 

      CPM is probabilistic in nature.

    • C. 

      CPM and PERT use similar terminology but were developed independently

    • D. 

      .All of these statements are correct

  • 3. 
    • A. 

      A project is a set of activities that can be performed in a certain logical sequence.

    • 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. 

      An activity cannot be represented by more than one arrow but an arrow can represent one or more activities.

  • 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. 

      All activities on a critical path are critical activities.

    • 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.

    • B. 

      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.

  • 8. 
    Given, expected duration of project = 47 days, variance = 9 days. What is the probability of not completing the project in 50 days? Z       :   0.33           1.0 Area  :   0.1293       0.3413

    • C. 

      0.1587

    • D. 

      0.3707

  • 9.

    • A. 

      0.5000

    • B. 

      0.6826

    • C. 

      0.2586

      0.3174

  • 10. 
    Mark the wrong statement.
    • A. 

      An event that represents the initiation of more than one activity is called the burst event.

    • B. 

      The longest path of a given project gives the maximum duration while its shortest path indicates the shortest duration.

    • C. 

      The resource allocation programmes aim to allocate the given resources in a manner that the project completes in minimum time.

    • D. 

      A non-critical activity may or may not have any free float.
