    • is a task or subproject that must be completed.
    • is the latest time an activity can be started without delaying the entire project.
    • is the amount of time a task may be delayed without changing the overall project completion time.
  • 4. Which of the following statements regarding critical paths is true?

    • Every network has only one critical path.
    • Some activities on the critical path may have slack.
    • The shortest of all paths through the network is the critical path.
    • On a specific project, there can be multiple critical paths, all with exactly the same duration.
  • 5. Which of the following statements regarding pert times is true?

    • The probable time estimate is calculated as t = (a + 4m + b)/6.
    • Optimistic time estimate is an estimate of the maximum time an activity will require.
