## Assume your Cost estimate of

Assume your Cost estimate of the Project is $1,000,000 -/+ 10%.

That means the Range of the Project is $900,000 to 1,100,000.

Here mean is 100% i.e. $1,000,000. Below mean is $900,000 and above mean is 1,100,000.

Samething apply to your Question. 50% exceed means above mean.

Answer is b.
