  4. 4. ANSWERS1. The Answer is D.Source: Hint : To simplify the mesh, there are teams each having 5 members, then there is another management teamcontaining you and the three team leads.Correct : CReference: PMBOK4 - pg:253source: Section: Manage Stakeholder ExpectationsProcess Group: Executing Process GroupQuestion Type: CalculationKnowledge Area: Communications ManagementDifficulty Level: HardExplanation: Each team contains 4 engineers and a team lead. So the total number of internal team communicationschannels are 5*4/2 = 10. Since there are three such teams, so the total of all internal team communications channels is30. Since three team leads are also reporting to you and not with each other, that adds three more communicationchannels. So the total number of project communication channels is 33. Choice C is the correct answer to this question.3. Souce: source: Section: Sequence ActivitiesProcess Group: Planning Process GroupQuestion Type: CalculationKnowledge Area: Time ManagementDifficulty Level: ModerateHint : Use PDM to calculate.Reference: PMBOK4 – pg:138The answer is C.Explanation: The duration of the critical path for the given data is 17. Hence choice C is correct while rest of thechoices are incorrect.5. The Answer is C6. Answer: : Use PERT to calculate.Reference: PMBOK4 – pg:150Explanation:Since you want to put some weight on the expected scenario, you will use the PERT formula. Yourestimate will then be 6.5 days. Hence choice D is the correct answer.
