 1. D

  2. A


For the first question total project budget is assumed so that the answer is correct .

For the second one could you please explain.



 parwan kindly explain both question how to solve them thorugh which formula.

 give  explanation and  method

  1 BAC - Budget at completion is palanned value at completion.

 2. Remember in EVM,  all values AC , EV PV are always represented as cumulative. 7000, is cumulative value of 4rth week,  It will be added to EV recorded of week 5, for cumulative EV up to week 5. 

As content of question is saying that in week 5 there were no progress = EV of month 5  = 0.

Hence cumulative EV of week 5 will be the same as EV of week 4.

Dear Pawar

There are numbers distracted ($500)  the meaning of the questions.Only issue is how we grabs the question.

Thanks pawar




 dear as youmeniton in EVM  AC PV EV are cumulative  what i understan from that is add (EV+AV+PV =7000+9000+7000 =23000)


These never can be added.
