Manjushree is working on a project which has a Budget at Completion (BAC) of INR 8,50,000.00 and is 24 months long. As on date her project is 35% complete, while it was supposed to be 40% complete at present. She has also reported that INR 4,25,000.00 has already been spent on the project.

### Re: EVM - Clarification on a question

As per my understanding and calculations the first option is correct, since estimate at completion is taken to into consideration the formula shall be (BAC-EV)/(EAC-AC) that comes up as 0.7. EAC was calculated using the formula BAC/CPI. However as per the original mocks from where this question is taken up the answer is second. Kindly provide your inputs.
