To me 12 days is the total activity since the Lag needs to be included in the total duration of 2 or more activities

Now to me the test seems wrong ad in Finish to Finish activity you have Lead not lag. So none of the answers are correct.

Yes, have gone through the video, so as per it the answer should be 10. As there is no such option so got confused. Can you confirm that the answer is 10?

If I read the question correctly A is successor and B is predecessor
relationship are always shown in format
Predecessor ----> Successor in this
In that case answer should be 7
However since there is Lag given for B, predecessors dont have Lag so I assume the question is framed in wrong fashion and B is dependent on A, then total duration should be 10 days
