Lead & lag Vs. non-working days

Postby Housam Bassal Sat Feb 11, 2017 3:41 pm

In a project, Activity A has a duration of 4 days and begins on the morning of Monday the 4th. The successor Activity, B, has a Finish-to-Start (FS) relationship with A. The Finish-to-Start relationship has 2 days of lag, and Activity B has a
duration of 3 days. If Saturday and Sunday are non working days, which of the following statements is true?

A. Total elapsed days (completing both activities) is 7 days
B. Activity B will be completed by the end of day on Thursday, 14th
C. Activity B will be completed by the end of day on Friday, 15th.
D. Activity B will be completed by the end of day on Tuesday, 12th

B - Activity A has a duration of 4 days and completes by end of the day on Thursday, 7th.There is a 2 day lag and since Saturday and Sunday are non-working, Activity B can begin only on Tuesday, 12th. Activity B has a duration of 3 days and completes by end of the day on Thursday, 14th. [PMBOK 5th edition, Page 156] [Project Time Management]

My question is : if I have 2 days lag, and its happened to be during weekend, why not consider them , or lag days consider only on working days? :?
