In this section of Software Engineering – Software Project Management.It contain Estimation for Software Projects MCQs (Multiple Choice Questions Answers).All the MCQs (Multiple Choice Question Answers) requires in depth reading of Software Engineering Subject as the hardness level of MCQs have been kept to advance level.These Sets of Questions are very helpful in Preparing for various Competitive Exams and University level Exams.
 

Practice it now to sharpen your Concepts

 

1
. The only reason an estimate may be unreliable is lack of experience with the application on the part of the estimator.
  • True
  • False
2
. The hardware required for most computer-based systems is more costly to purchase than the software.
  • True
  • False
3
. Since project estimates are not completely reliable, they can be ignored once a software development project begins
  • True
  • False
4
. The objective of software project planing is to
  • convince the customer that a project is feasible.
  • make use of historical project data.
  • enable a manager to make reasonable estimates of cost and schedule
  • determine the probable profit margin prior to bidding on a project.
5
. The project scope is defined as a means of bounding the system
  • functionality
  • performance
  • costs
  • schedule
  • a and b
6
. Software feasibility is based on which of the following
  • business and marketing concerns
  • scope, constraints, market
  • technology, finance, time, resources
  • technical prowess of the developers
7
. The number of people required for a software project is determined
  • after an estimate of the development effort is made.
  • by the size of the project budget.
  • from an assessment of the technical complexity of the system.
  • all of the above
8
. Reusable software components must be
  • catalogued for easy reference
  • standardized for easy application.
  • validated for easy integration.
  • all of the above
9
. The software engineering environment (SEE) consists of which of the following?
  • customers
  • developers
  • hardware platforms
  • software tools
  • c and d
10
. Software project estimation techniques can be broadly classified under which of the following headings?
  • automated processes
  • decomposition techniques
  • empirical models
  • regression models
  • b and c
11
. The size estimate for a software product to be built must be based on a direct measure like LOC.
  • True
  • False
12
. Problem-based estimation is based on problem decomposition which focuses on
  • information domain values
  • project schedule
  • software functions
  • process activities
  • a and c
13
. LOC-based estimation techniques require problem decomposition based on
  • information domain values
  • project schedule
  • software functions
  • process activities
14
. FP-based estimation techniques require problem decomposition based on
  • information domain values
  • project schedule
  • software functions
  • process activities
15
. Process-based estimation techniques require problem decomposition based on
  • information domain values
  • project schedule
  • software functions
  • process activities
  • c and d
16
. Unlike a LOC or function point each person’s “use-case” is exactly the same size
  • True
  • False
17
. When agreement between estimates is poor the cause may often be traced to inadequately defined project scope or inappropriate productivity data.
  • True
  • False
18
. Empirical estimation models are typically based on
  • expert judgement based on past project experiences
  • refinement of expected value estimation
  • regression models derived from historical project data
  • trial and error determination of the parameters and coefficients
19
. COCOMO II is an example of a suite of modern empirical estimation models that require sizing information expressed as:
  • function points
  • lines of code
  • object points
  • any of the above
20
. Putnam's software equation is a dynamic empirical model that has two independent parameters: a size estimate and an indication of project duration in calendar months or years.
  • True
  • False
21
. Function points are of no user in developing estimates for object-oriented software.
  • True
  • False
22
. In agile software development estimation techniques focus on the time required to complete each
  • increment
  • scenario
  • task
  • use-case
23
. It is possible to use a modified function point technique to develop estimates for Web applications.
  • True
  • False
24
. Using a statistical technique like decision tree analysis can provide some assistance in sorting out the true costs associated with the make-buy decision.
  • True
  • False
25

  • True
  • False
