The correct answer is option [A].

When slack of an activity is positive - it represents a situation where extra resources are available and the completion of the project is not delayed.

When slack of an activity is negative- it represents that a program falls behind schedule and additional resources are required to complete the project in time.

When slack of an activity is zero - the activity is critical and any delay in its performance will delay the completion of the whole project.

Slack or float is time by which any activity delay without delaying project completion.

Positive slack-----Ahead of schedule.

Negative slack------Behind the schedule.

Zero slack ---------On the schedule.

When slack of an activity is positive means slack may be zero and higher. For this reason option C shall be also true. So that option D is correct.

The Answer should be A because positive does not include zero. Hence extra resource is available and the project is ahead of schedule.

Answer A is correct.

Because positive slack never be behind the schedule or on the critical path.

The slack of an activity is +ve = option A.
For -ve = option B.
For 0 = option C.

When slack is zero at that time activity is critical. So correct is "A".
