PMP® Exam Sample Question
You are managing a water supply network deployment
project. During project planning you are considering two
approaches to lay the pipe network. Approach A will most
likely cost $50,000 (±5%). Approach B will most likely cost
$25,000 (±40%). Which approach will you select if your
project stakeholders' risk tolerances are low and if you
want to select the less risky approach?
A) Neither approach since they are not definitive estimates.
B) Approach B since it ranges from $15,000 to $35,000.
C) Approach A since it ranges from $47,500 to $52,500.
D) A combination of approach A and B.
Estimates are never definitive.

The correct answer is C.
Please note that the question doesn't
ask for the approach that is more
financially feasible. Instead, the
question asks you to identify the
approach that has the lower risk. The
larger the range of an estimate, the
larger the risk. Since approach B is a
wide range estimate, it is more risky.
Approach C has a narrow estimate,
which makes this approach less risky.
