2- Which of the following represents the value of
work we have actually completed?

3- While completing your project, you realized that you
need to decrease the project costs. After researching
your options, you came up with the following choices.
Which choice would DECREASE project costs?
A ) Change to component A from component B. component A
costs more to purchase, but has a lower life cycle cost than B.
B ) Change activity A to be completed by resource B instead of
resource c. resource B is more experienced worker.

30 percent increase in the risk that five more resources will be
D ) Remove a test from the project management plan.

expenditures, excluding the work packages currently
C ) All subsequent work will be completed based upon the
cost performance to-date
D ) The cost performance cannot change during the project
6- What tool must project managers rely upon
to accurately identify the costs associated with

B ) A Gantt chart
C ) A precedence diagram network
D ) A work breakdown structure
7- If the Earned Value is equal to Actual Cost, it
A-Project is on budget and on schedule
B-Schedule Variance Index is 1
C-There is no schedule variance
D-There is no cost variance
8-Suppose you have a budgeted cost of a project at
$900,000. The project is to be completed in 9 months.
After a month, you have completed 10% of the project

completion should have been 15%. At the current
progress rate, how much more money is required to
complete the project?

B) $ 900,000
C) $ 1,000,000
