In this section of Software Engineering – Software Process Model and Agile Development.It contain Software Engineering – Software Process Models 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 rapid application development model is
  • Another name for component-based development
  • A useful approach when a customer cannot define requirements clearly.
  • A high speed adaptation of the linear sequential model.
  • All of the above.
2
. In the Unified Process model requirements are determined iteratively and may span more than one phase of the process.
  • True
  • False
3
. The waterfall model of software development is
  • A reasonable approach when requirements are well defined.
  • A good approach when a working program is required quickly.
  • The best approach to use for projects with large development teams
  • An old fashioned model that is rarely used any more
4
. The incremental model of software development is
  • A reasonable approach when requirements are well defined.
  • A good approach when a working core product is required quickly.
  • The best approach to use for projects with large development teams
  • A revolutionary model that is not used for commercial products.
5
. Evolutionary software process models
  • Are iterative in nature
  • Can easily accommodate product requirements changes
  • Do not generally produce throwaway systems
  • All of the above.
6
. The prototyping model of software development is
  • A reasonable approach when requirements are well defined.
  • A useful approach when a customer cannot define requirements clearly.
  • The best approach to use for projects with large development teams.
  • A risky model that rarely produces a meaningful product.
7
. The spiral model of software development
  • Ends with the delivery of the software product.
  • Is more chaotic than the incremental model.
  • Includes project risks evaluation during each iteration
  • All of the above
8
. The concurrent development model is
  • Another name for concurrent engineering.
  • Defines events that trigger engineering activity state transitions.
  • Only used for development of parallel or distributed systems.
  • Used whenever a large number of change requests are anticipated.
  • Both a and b
9
. The component-based development model is
  • Only appropriate for computer hardware design
  • Not able to support the development of reusable components.
  • Dependent on object technologies for support.
  • Not cost effective by known quantifiable software metrics
10
. The formal methods model of software development makes use of mathematical methods to
  • Define the specification for computer-based systems
  • Develop defect free computer-based systems.
  • Verify the correctness of computer-based systems.
  • All of the above.
11

  • True
  • False
