Determine the critical path and the expected completion, Finance Basics

The information in the table below is available for a large fund-raising project.

a. Determine the critical path and the expected completion time of the project.

b. Plot the total project cost, starting from day 1 to the expected completion date of the project, assuming the earliest start times for each activity.  Compare that result to a similar plot for the latest start times.  What implication does the time differential have for cash flows and project scheduling?
