47. In a Gantt chart, which of the following is a signified as a red bar with a crosshatched pattern?
48. Which schedule type shows the planned duration of each task as a horizontal bar with the actual task progress shown in the same bar, or a second bar, underneath or above the planned bar?
49. Which of the following are disadvantages of the network diagrams? (Select two that apply.)
50. Which schedule duration estimating method considers the optimistic estimate, the pessimistic estimate, and the most likely estimates?

54. Subsequent to the development of the Gnatt chart, planners and managers used a similar approach to depict information about significant project events focused on specific points in time. Which schedule type is being described?
55. What is the difference between a summary schedule and an intermediate schedule?
56. Consider the difference between a time-constrained schedule and a resources-constrained schedule. Which constraints schedule.

57. Which task dependency involves the successor not being able to finish until the predecessor finishes?
58. Consider the difference between a resource-constrained schedule and a time-constrained schedule. Which constraint occurs when there is a shortage of people, equipment, facilities, or materials; and which constraint occurs when the length of the critical path surpasses the allotted time for the project.
59. One of the components of the Critical Path Method (CPM) involves moving from the first task through the first task through the network to the last task, while adhering to task relationships.
