Following Software Programming language Entrance Multiple choice objective type questions and answers will help you in Software Programming 2015 examinations :
6.Which property of the rapid prototype is not important?
|The speed with which it can be developed|
|The speed with which it can be modified|
|Its ability to determine the client's real needs|
|The insights that the design team can gain from it, even if they are of the 'how not to do it' variety|
|Its internal structure.|
ANSWER : 3 Its ability to determine the client's real needs
Explanation : The sole use of the rapid prototype is to determine what the client's real needs are as rapidly as possible. The rapid prototype is then effectively discarded so its internal structure is not relevant.
7.The relationship between a derived class (or subclass) and base class is referred to as
ANSWER : 2 Inheritance
8.Read the following paragraph and identify the correct statement. “Imagine that you were recently hired as a software engineer to a company that specializes in aircraft navigation control software. While orientating yourselves to the company’s work practices, you observe that they in fact do not conduct a few tests that they should in order to comply with the relevant safety standard. When you inquire about this from the project manager, he dismisses it saying that those tests are really unnecessary (and takes an unreasonably long time to conduct, as well as being superfluous) and that they have managed with the other tests for so long, without any problems.”
|You should immediately resign from the company and file a complaint with the relevant standard institution|
|You should do nothing and let the matter slide|
|Although you are new to the company, and you hardly know anything about the internal processes and politics, you should insist on the company changing its work practices immediately; failing which you threaten to report the matter|
|Since you are new to the company, and you are unfamiliar with the internal processes and politics, you should first find-out more about the issue and its background|
|None of the above statements are correct.|
ANSWER : 4 Since you are new to the company, and you are unfamiliar with the internal processes and politics, you should first find-out more about the issue and its background
Explanation : D is the appropriate choice.
9.An example of the risk involved in software development is
|Key personnel may resign before the product is complete|
|The manufacturer of critical components (e.g. the hardware associated with a real-time system) may go bankrupt|
|Technology changes may render the product obsolete|
|Competitors may market a fully functional lower-cost equivalent package|
|All of these are risks involved in software development.|
ANSWER : 5 All of these are risks involved in software development.
Explanation : There are many risks involved in software development.
10.Which of the following items should not be included in the software project management plan?
|The techniques and case tools to be used|
|Detailed schedules, budgets and resource allocations|
|The life cycle model to be used|
|The organisational structure of the development organisation, project responsibilities, managerial objectives and priorities|
|None of the above.|
ANSWER : 5 None of the above.
Explanation : The software project management plan should include: the life cycle model to be used, the organisational structure of the development organisation, project responsibilities, managerial objectives and priorities, the life cycle model to be used, detailed schedules, budgets and resource allocations.
