Hello everyone! Here is this week's free PMP exam sample question from the PM Exam Simulator.

You are managing a nationwide telecom network deployment project. You learned that you are unable to start any civil works before obtaining a government agency's permit, which could take months. The project deadlines are aggressive and you might face penalties if you don't meet them. Obtaining the government agency's permit prior to civil works on any site is an example of which of the following?

A. Mandatory Dependency
B. External Dependency
C. Project Constraint
D. Project Requirement

HINT: All of the choices are correct in a way but considering the relationship of the permit to the civil work will yield only one correct choice.

Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is B.

The question asked you about the relationship between civil works and the government agency permit to perform these works. When we are talking about relationships between activities we are talking about dependencies between the tasks. Obtaining the permits will definitely be in your project's scope of work and will also be a part of your contract. Therefore, it is considered a mandatory dependency. Similarly, as you have to fulfil this requirement it is both a project constraint and a project requirement. Most importantly, as obtaining the permit and the lead time to do so is beyond your control, it is an external dependency, which is the best answer to this question given the scenario.
