Quantitative Methods :Multiple choice Question

TRUE/FALSE

1. In a transportation problem, items are allocated from sources to destinations at a maximum cost.

2. The linear programming model for a transportation problem has constraints for supply at each source and demand at each destination.

3. In a balanced transportation model where supply equals demand, all constraints are equalities.

4. The transshipment model is an extension of the transportation model in which intermediate transshipment points are added between the sources and destinations.

5. In a transshipment problem, items may be transported from one transshipment point to another.

6. An assignment problem is a special form of transportation problem where all supply and demand values equal 0.

TRUE/FALSE

1. In a transportation problem, items are allocated from sources to destinations at a maximum cost.
FALSE: In a transportation problem items are shipped/allocated from source to destination at minimum possible cost with the supply availability and demand requirements

2. The linear programming model for a transportation problem has constraints for supply at each source and demand at each destination.
TRUE: for each supply node the constraint will be of less than or equal to nature ...
