      Software Development Life Cycle

    Correct Answer
    D. Software Development Life Cycle
    Explanation
    The given answer, "Software Development Life Cycle," is the correct choice because it accurately describes the methodology used to develop, maintain, and replace information systems for improving the quality of the software design and development process. The Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is a structured approach that consists of various phases, such as requirements gathering, system design, coding, testing, deployment, and maintenance. It ensures that software projects are well-planned, executed, and controlled, leading to high-quality software products. The other options, System Life Cycle (SLDC) and Program Life Cycle, do not specifically refer to the development of software systems.
