so wht is the problem with dummy?

MAYANKSINGHVI291Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
there are two situations when dummy appears.. 1. IF WE HAVE TWO ACTIVITIES HAVING SAME HEAD AND TAIL EVENT WITH DIFFERENT CONSUMPTION OF TIME THEN ALWAYS WE SHOULD INTRODUCE DUMMY RELATION. 2. IF ANY ACTIVITY APPEARS ATLEAST TWO TIMES IN PRECEDING COLUMN, I IN INDIVIDUAL AND II WITH OTHER ACTIVITY, THEN WE SHOULD INTRODUCE DUMMY.

IN YOUR QUESTION I THINK THERE WOULD NOT BE ANY DUMMY ACTIVITY AS NEITHER OF TWO SITUATIONS ARE APPLICABLE
