  • 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. 
    • 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. 
    • 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. 
    • 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           1.0Area  :   0.1293       0.3413
    • A. 

      0.6293

    • B. 

      0.8413

    • D. 

      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.
