Need clarification on PERT diagram question

Postby poonam.a07 Sat Mar 17, 2018 3:16 pm

I didnt come across such question before where it ask which types of network relationship should be used based on the project type..

You are working in a project to analyze the impact of pollution on human life, and you have drawn a network diagram for this project. Which type of relationship have you used in this network diagram?
(a)  Start to Finish
(b)  Start to Start
(c)  Finish to Start
(d)  All of the above

Answer :-
This is a research type of project, so therefore, you will draw a PERT diagram. In PERT diagram, you can only use a “Finish to Start” type of relationship.

can anybody please explain me the context of this question, or where I am lacking to see this question as a surprise..

I am not sure if research projects only use Finish to start relationship i,e everything has to be sequential.

I did not find that in any official PMI publications
