If you're not certain how the work of Task A relates to the work of Task B, which dependency type should you create?

Start-to-Start (SS)

Finish-to-Start (FS)

Finish-to-Finish (FF)

Start to Finish (SF)

After "Lay the Carpet" and "Install the Lights" are both finished, "Paint the Walls" should start immediately. To put these task relationships in your plan, which dependency types should you create?

"Lay the Carpet" Finish-to-Start with "Install the Lights," and "Install the Lights" Finish-to-Start with "Paint the Walls."

"Lay the Carpet" Start-to-Start with "Install the Lights," and "Paint the Walls" Finish-to-Start with "Lay the Carpet."

"Lay the Carpet" Finish-to-Finish with "Install the Lights," and "Paint the Walls" Finish-to-Start with "Lay the Carpet."

It will take a writer 12 days to write a manual and an editor 6 days to edit it. Which type of dependency will get the work completed in the shortest possible time?

FS — finish writing and then start editing.

SS — start writing and start editing at the same time.

FF — finish editing at the same time as finish writing.
