Hi Rehanl,

Below is the similar question which will help you to understand the concept.

Mark is in execution phase of the road construction project in a town which has total duration of 12 months and work effort evenly distributed. 3 months down the line during the execution phase mark realizes that there is a change in local law which demands sound proof fencing of the road passing near the hospitals and School. This task was not foreseen and not included in cost baseline of USD Mn 18. Mark submits a Change request to CCB. While total cost budget for project is USD 25 Mn CCB approves to use USD 2 Mn for additional work from Management reserves to baseline. At the end of 5th month mark present following performance graph to Steering group. What is his Estimate at completion

a. 19
b. 20
c. 19.5
d. 21

Correct answer is a

Explanation:

Original BAC is 18 M, Which has been revised to USD 20 MN, when a Management reserve of 2Mn was approved for unforeseen work. The variance is atypical hence, at end of 5th month

PV = 7.5 (Given)
BAC = 20
EV= 8 (Given)
AC = 7 (Given)

EAC = AC+(BAC-EV) = 7+ (20-8) = 19
