Option 3 seems apt.

Option 2 is not recommend as high risk cud be caused through rework in fast tracking.

Option 1 is related to identified risk handling.

Option 4 is related to crashing.

Pls advise.

Fast Tracking essentially relate to having a parallel arrangement to complete a task. To me, option 3 makes sense as using a preferential logic or soft or preferred logic would facilitate fast tracking. Hence #3. Activities have preferential dependencies should be the choice.

Please help me with this query:

Out of fast-tracking & Crashing, which technique one should use when network diagram cannot be changed.

For reference this is the exact question:
Q. After completing the schedule network analysis, you find out that your project schedule is taking too long and you also find that you cannot change your network diagram. In such cases, in order to get the project completed faster, what option do you have?

A. Nothing can be done
B. Crash the project
C. Perform resource leveling
D. Fast track the project

the question makes little sense to me, unless maybe I am missing something.

If the network diagram cannot be changed , no technique can be useful as resource leveling or compression technique will eventually optimize/change the plan
