Duration Estimates

Postby thiru26@gmail.com Sat Oct 24, 2015 8:46 pm

40 . As a project manager, you need to estimate the regression testing for your product. You would like to do 5 full testing cycles. Each cycle is estimated to take 4 days. What should be your estimated duration for the testing activity?
25 days
18 to 22 days
18 days
22 to 24 days

Totally forgot how to do.

I would have gone for 18 to 22 days...
Simple explanation is - Definitive estimates are in range of -5% to + 10% according to PMBOK (P.201), and range will always have lower and upper limit.

How do you explain how the answer is 18 to 22 days (when 5x4=20)?
