Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there 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.
