  2. The estimated worth of Activity A is $200 and is 100% complete. Activity B is worth $75 and is 90% complete. Actual costs to date are $120. Activity C is worth $200 and is 75% complete. Costs to date are $175. The total budget is $1,000. What is the Cost Variance (CV)?
    A. 0.84
    B. 0.88
    C. -77.50
    D. -57.50
    C. -77.50

    CV=EV-AC
    EV = % complete X PV = EV - for EACH Activity = 417.50
    A = 200, B = 67.5, C = 150A
    C = the sum of the Actual Costs = 495
    CV = 417.5 - 495
