PMI RMP Exam Sample Questions

Question #1

  4. Trends in qualitative risk analysis

Question #2

Shadi is managing a mega construction project, and this project challenge is completing a high-tech governmental university in 18 months and hand over it to the university management on 03/11/2021. Due to high importance of the project completion date, your risk manager performed a detailed Monte Carlo simulation for the project completion date, and as a result of this technique, you had the table shown below. You have discussed the results with the executive management, and they requested to increase the confidence level of the required completion date to 75%. Based on this request, what is the required additional contingency reserve

  1. 13 days
  2. 14 days
  3. 15 days
  4. 16 days

Question #3

Shadi is managing a project where he is calculating the expected monetary value during planning phase of the project. The following represents the risk assessment results:  20% probability of schedule delay with $20,000 cost impact, and 15% probability of cost overrun due to raw material price increase with $10,000 cost impact. In addition to a good procurement deal with cost savings of $10,000 and probability of 50%. What's the project expected monetary value?

  1. $500
  2. -$500
  3. $4,500
  4. -$4,500

Question #4

Shadi has identified a project risk that could injure project team members. He does not want to accept any risk where someone could become injured on this project, so he hires a professional vendor to complete this portion of the project work. This situation is known as what type of risk response?

  1. Acceptance
  2. Transference
  3. Avoidance
  4. Mitigation

Question #5

Yara is managing a project where she wants to find out the project cost budget. The cost of project activities as an output of the estimate costs process is $48,000.

  3. Document them and set them aside because they are already covered in your contingency plans
  4. Document them and give them to the customer

Question #7

While performing numerical risk analysis on your project, you want to use modeling techniques such as the Monte Carlo simulation to analyze the project completion budget.

  2. Estimation techniques
  3. Risk urgency assessment
  4. Risk data quality assessment

Question #9

What should the team do ?

  1. Insufficient data
  2. Select vendor A
  3. Select vendor B

PMI RMP questions answers

Answer #1

Option c. Prioritized list of quantified risks is an output of the quantitative risk analysis process. Qualitative risk analysis tends to be more subjective. It focuses on identifying risks to measure both the likelihood of a specific risk event occurring during the project life cycle and the impact it will have on the overall schedule should it hit. The goal being to determine severity.

Answer #2

Option d.  The requested completion date is 03/11/2021, with a confidence level of 40%, to increase the confidence level to 75%, the new date will be 03/27/2021, the difference between the two dates is 16 days. This is the required additional contingency reserve.

Answer #3

Option b. For this risk assessment, we have 2 threats with negative expected monetary value and one opportunity with positive expected monetary value. Expected monetary value= Probability*Impact. EMV= (-20,000*.2) - (10000*.15) + (10,000*0.50) = -$500.

Answer #4

Option b. Shadi is transferring the risk to a professional vendor, this is transference risk response strategy. Risk transfer can be defined as a mechanism of risk management that involves the transfer of future risks from one person to another, and one of the most common examples of risk management is purchasing insurance where the risk of an individual or a company is transferred to a third party (insurance company)

Answer #5

Option b. Cost Budget= Cost of activities + Contingency reserves + Management reserves. It's 48,000+12,000+3,000 = $63,000. The management reserve is the amount of the project budget reserved for unforeseen work that is within the scope of the project. The project manager adds the management reserve to the cost baseline resulting in the total project budget.

Answer #6

Option b. Risk needs to be actively monitored by the project. The watch list is regularly monitored to ensure that if any of the listed issues become risks, they are handled using the project risk management processes.

Answer #7

Option a. Monte Carlo gives you a range of possible outcomes and probabilities to allow you to consider the likelihood of different scenarios. As per the chart, the average completion budget at 50% is $733,867.

Answer #8

Option a. Probability and impact matrix tool used in the perform qualitative risk analysis process will allows the organization to prioritize project risks for further analysis, and it can reflect the organization level of risk tolerance.

Answer #9

Option c. The three commonly used classifications for risk tolerance are risk averse, risk taker and neutral risk taker (risk averse, risk seeking, risk neutral). Utility function: Ultimate decision on how to deal with risk is based in part on Project Manager tolerance for risk - this is measured by Utility function; - Y axis refers to Utility, i.e., satisfaction that the project manager gets from a payoff. X axis refers to the amount of money at stake.

Answer #10

Option b. Your selection will depend on the given figures of each vendor, probability, impact and price. Higher probability and confidence levels are better. For vendor A= .55*.60=0.33, Vendor B= 0.8*.35=0.28. It is better to go with Vendor A.
