    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False

    Off-the-shelf software packages are mass produced and so are cheaper to buy

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Off-the-shelf software packages are mass-produced, meaning they are produced in large quantities for a wide market. This allows for economies of scale, resulting in lower production costs. As a result, these software packages are cheaper to buy compared to custom-made or specialized software solutions.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Tailor made packages can be made to suit the user's precise needs and to run on the user's existing hardware.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Tailor made packages refer to software or services that are customized to meet the specific needs and requirements of the user. These packages can be designed to work efficiently on the user's existing hardware, ensuring compatibility and optimal performance. This allows users to have a personalized and tailored experience, enhancing their productivity and overall satisfaction. Therefore, the statement "Tailor made packages can be made to suit the user's precise needs and to run on the user's existing hardware" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Tailor made software is readily available

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Tailor made software is readily available" is false. Tailor-made software refers to software that is specifically designed and developed to meet the unique needs and requirements of a particular organization or individual. It is not readily available off-the-shelf like pre-packaged software. Tailor-made software is customized to fit the specific needs of the user, and therefore it requires a development process to design, build, and implement the software solution.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Program documentation would include instructions on how to install the software

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Program documentation typically includes instructions on how to use the software, but not necessarily how to install it. The installation process is usually covered in a separate installation guide or manual. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The User Manual would include information about how to use the software in terms the non-computer expert can understand.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because a user manual is designed to provide instructions and guidance on how to use a software or product in a way that is easy to understand for non-experts. It typically includes step-by-step explanations, diagrams, and other visuals to assist users in navigating and utilizing the software effectively. The purpose of a user manual is to ensure that users, regardless of their level of technical expertise, can make the most out of the software by providing clear and concise instructions.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Program documentation is likely to include the code itself as well as a description of major procedures

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Program documentation typically includes the code itself, which provides a detailed explanation of how the program works and what each line of code does. In addition to the code, program documentation also includes a description of major procedures, which explains the overall functionality and purpose of the program's main procedures or functions. This documentation is essential for developers and other stakeholders to understand and maintain the program effectively. Therefore, it is true that program documentation includes both the code and a description of major procedures.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    User documentation is created by the user.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False

    User Documentation (e.g. User Manual) are instructions to the user to help him use the software without any problems.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Off-the-shelf software is readily available to buy

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Off-the-shelf software refers to pre-packaged software solutions that are readily available for purchase and use without the need for customization or development. This means that the software is already developed, tested, and ready to be used by customers. Customers can simply buy the software and install it on their systems, saving time and effort compared to developing custom software from scratch. Therefore, the statement "Off-the-shelf software is readily available to buy" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Microsoft Office is an example of off-the-shelf software

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Microsoft Office is an example of off-the-shelf software because it is a pre-packaged software product that is readily available for purchase and use by the general public. It is not custom-designed or tailored to meet the specific needs of any particular individual or organization. Off-the-shelf software is mass-produced and typically includes a range of features and functionalities that are suitable for a wide variety of users. Microsoft Office, with its suite of applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, is a popular example of off-the-shelf software that is widely used in both personal and professional settings.
