Answers

1.   B - A project calendar is a calendar of working days or shifts that establishes those dates on which schedule activities are worked. It also establishes non-working days that determine dates on which schedule activities are idle, such as holidays, week-ends and non-shift hours. [PMBOK 5th edition, Page 184] [Project Time Management]

2.   A - The correct sequence of processes in the Time Management Knowledge Area is: Plan Schedule Management, Define Activities, Sequence Activities, Estimate Activity Resources, Estimate Activity Durations, Develop Schedule and Control Schedule. [PMBOK 5th edition, Page 141] [Project Time Management]

3.   A - The landscaping work needs to start on completion of the office building, so it is a finish-to-start relationship. Since it needs to start 15 days before completion of the building, it requires a lead of 15 days.
Hence the answer is finish-to-start with a 15 day lead. [PMBOK 5th edition, Page 156] [Project Time Management]

4.   B - Decomposition is the correct response. [PMBOK 5th edition, Page 151] [Project Time Management]

5.   D - The accuracy of Activity Duration estimates can be improved by considering the amount of risk in the original estimate. The three types of estimates on which three-point estimates are based are: Most likely,        Optimistic, and Pessimistic. An Activity Duration can be created using a value derived from these three estimated durations. [PMBOK 5th edition, Page 170] [Project Time Management]

6.   A - Resource Leveling can often cause the original critical path to change. [PMBOK 5th edition, Page 179 [Project Time Management]

7.   C - The correct response is the Hammock activity. The comprehensive summary activity that is displayed in bar chart reports for control and management communication is called Hammock activity. [PMBOK 5th edition,
  Page 182] [Project Time Management]

8.   A - Monte Carlo Analysis is a technique that computes, or iterates, the project cost, or the project schedule many times using input values selected at random from probability distributions of possible costs or durations, to calculate a distribution of possible total project costs or completion dates. [PMBOK 5th edition, Page 180, 340] [Project Time Management]

9.   D - The difference between the early and late finish of a task is called the total float for that task. Total float is the amount of time that a schedule activity can be delayed from its early start date without delaying the project   finish date. [PMBOK 5th edition, Page 177] [Project Time Management]

10. D - This is a situation where the Editing activity can happen ONLY after the film shooting has been completed. Hence the logical relationship between the two tasks is Finish to Start (FS). [PMBOK 5th edition, Page 156]      [Project Time Management]
