Consider the network described in the table below.a. Calculate the expected duration of each activity.b. Calculate the expected duration and variance of the critical path.c. Calculate the probability that the project will be completed in fewer than 30 time units.106. The network below represents a project being analyzed by Critical Path Methods. Activitydurations are indicated on the network.a. Identify the activities on the critical path.b. What is the duration of the critical path?c. Calculate the amount of slack time at activity H.d. If activity I were delayed by ten time units, what would be the impact on the project duration?(a) Critical activities are A-C-J-K; (b) The critical path is 26 time units; (c) Slack at H is 9units; (d) I has 11 units slack–a ten unit delay would have no impact on the project.107.
