Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Which of these is not correct
    • A. 

      PERT is probabilistic in nature.

    • B. 

      CPM is deterministic in nature.

    • C. 

      CPM is event-oriented.

    • D. 

      CPM and PERT use similar terminology but were developed independently.

  • 2. 
    _________ is not a rule of network construction.
    • A. 

      Only one arrow defines each activity.

    • B. 

      A network must have only an initial and only one terminal node.

    • C. 

      Final nodes and identical initial can identify two activities.

    • D. 

      None

  • 3. 
    It is known that in a project, activity 4-6 has a duration of six days and a total float of three days. The E and L times at node 4 are 8 and 11, respectively, while, at node 6, both are equal to 17.Which of the following is not a true statement about 4-6?
    • A. 

      Its free float is three days.

    • B. 

      Its independent float is 0.

    • C. 

      It is a critical activity.

    • D. 

      The ES of this activity is 8.

  • 4. 
    Pick the wrong relationship:
    • A. 

      Interfering float = Total float – Free float

    • B. 

      Total float =Free float + Independent float

    • C. 

      Total float ≥ Free float ≥ Independent float

    • D. 

      Free float = Total float – Head event slack

  • 5. 
    Given, expected duration of the 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

    • C. 

      0.1587

    • D. 

      0.3707

  • 6. 
    Given, expected duration of the project = 47 days, variance = 9 days. Expected Time for Project Completion: 50 days Z       :   0.33           1.0Area  :   0.1293       0.3413 What is the probability of completing the project within three days, more or less than the expected time?  
    • A. 

      0.5000

    • B. 

      0.6826

    • C. 

      0.2586

    • D. 

      0.3174

  • 7. 
    ________ is not true about crashing?
    • A. 

      Always pay attention to the critical path and select between critical activities only.

    • B. 

      Crashing cost per day = (Crash cost – Normal cost) / (Normal time – Crash time).

    • C. 

      Always choose the activity with the least crashing cost.

    • D. 

      All are true

  • 8. 
    CPM is:
    • A. 

      Critical Project Management

    • B. 

      Critical Path Management

    • C. 

      Critical Path Method

    • D. 

      Crash Project Method

  • 9. 
    Mark the incorrect statement:
    • A. 

      A project can be called a set of activities that can be performed in a particular logical sequence.

    • B. 

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

    • C. 

      An arrow which is representing an activity may have any kind of length and shape.

    • D. 

      All are correct

  • 10. 
    Point out which of these is not required in Precedence relationships.
    • A. 

      All the predecessor(s) of an activity should be focused on.

    • B. 

      Should only focus on immediate predecessor(s).

    • C.
