I need it in 5 Hours

Write a develop a three to five (3–5) page paper that addresses the following:

Describe the elements of the project plan that depend on the WBS, and provide examples of any four (4).
Discuss the potential risks and circumstances under which it might be appropriate to use a WBS from a previous project rather than develop a new one.
Explain why it is useful to have a complete WBS before engaging in formal uncertainty assessment.
Explain the difference between hard logic and soft logic for establishing dependency relationships in project schedules and offer a creative example (not from the text) for each one.

The format of the paper is to be as follows:

Typed, double-spaced, Times New Roman font (size 12), one-inch margins on all sides, APA format.
Use headers for each of the subjects being covered, followed by your response.
In addition to the three to five (3–5) pages required, a title page is to be included. The title page is to contain the title of the assignment, your name, the instructor’s name, the course title, and the date.
Note: You will be graded on the quality of your answers, the logic/organization of the report, your language skills, and your writing skills.

The assignment will be graded using the following rubric:

Outcomes Assessed
