# Civil Engineering Drawing MCQ’s – Developing a Network

1 - Question

Total project time is the shortest project time in which the project can be completed.
a) True
b) False
Explanation: This is determined by a sequence of activities and known as ‘’Critical path’’. Activities which are not on the critical path are important but not critical akin to the activities falling within the critical path.

2 - Question

Critical path is represented by a thin line indicates the line of sequence of activity which must be completed on schedule
a) True
b) False
Explanation: Critical path is represented by a thick line indicates the line of sequence of activity which must be completed on schedule.

3 - Question

The basic purpose of drawing a network diagram and its analysis is to control the activities strictly limited to time and sequence of events.
a) True
b) False
Explanation: In actual execution there is every likelihood of deviation from the fixed days due to circumstances. Deviation from the estimated dates and actuals have to be analysed critically and steps immediately taken to correct the same so that other linked events are not affected.

4 - Question

When a project has too many structures then it is prepared separately keeping in view the whole, and a combined critical path of the whole project is prepared linking one another.
a) True
b) False
Explanation: The critical path of the whole combination gives a complete picture of the whole project at a glance and helps the management to detect and to locate the bottlenecks of different works under different organisations and under different agencies and to take remedial actions well in advance and to exercise an overall control.

5 - Question

In developing a network diagram time flows from right to left.
a) True
b) False
Explanation: This flow is represented by an arrow, it can be defined as the sequence of activity on completion of which the entire project can be completed. In developing a network diagram succeeding events have a number higher than that of the preceding events.

6 - Question

___________ is defined as a job or action to be completed, between two events within a project.
a) Planning
b) Event
c) Activity
d) Sequence
Explanation: The activity consumes time and money and is represented by an arrow indicating the sequence in which the events occur. Each activity is independent, and indicates such work as preparation of designs, scrutiny of tenders, laying of pipes, foundations, erections of frame, install mill work etc.

7 - Question

A ____________ is defined as accomplishment in planning a project.
a) activity
b) event
c) schedule
d) planning
Explanation: The Event is recognisable as a particular instant of time and not a passage of time and is represented by a geometrical figure such as circle, rectangle, square, etc. Beginning and end of a job or number of jobs are events.

8 - Question

Once a project is planned in terms of ‘events’ and ‘activities’ what next is important?
a) Schedule
b) Activity
c) Time
d) Finishing
