It gives the status of a group of activities in a project. That means. It shows the starting date, expected completion date, rescheduled date, the actual completion date of each group of activity which is known as a milestone.

And this milestone chart is prepared in excel sheet.

In every activity there are certain key events which mark the completion of a certain portion of the main activity, these key events are Milestones.

Example- If construction of Footing is main activity then Excavation is the first milestone
PCC laying is 2nd.
Formwork is 3rd.
Reinforcement 4th.
Concreting is 5th.

In a milestone, chart milestones are generally used to show the completion of different sub-activities and also the progress of a project can be shown.

Yes, in Milestone chart,

Greenline shows Work in time.
Black- Intended work.
Red- Behind schedule work.

Also shows the completion of sub-activities hence it is more advance than Bar chart.

If none of this option is correct then what's the difference between Milestone and Bar chart?

Hence, 4th option should be All of these.
