Answer and Explanation:

The Correct Answer is C.

Since the BAC = $20,000 and the project is 75% complete, the EV = (BAC x % complete) = $15,000. Now you need to calculate your desired future cost performance, you should calculate the TCPI based on EAC by using the formula TCPI = (BAC-EV)/(EAC-AC) = (20,000 - 15,000) / (25,000 - 17,000) = 5,000/8,000 = 0.625.
