Correct Answer: B
Cycle Time refers to the time it takes (from beginning to end) to complete the creation of a potentially shippable product increment. Actual Time and Real Time are used synonymously and refer to the actual time during each day that the team members are available and are productively working on specific Agile project tasks. Ideal Time or Ideal Days refers to when you make the assumption that your Agile project team members will have no interruptions in their work, such as checking email or attending meetings, and will be 100% productive every hour of every day.
