    A. "Code for Tomorrow"
    Explanation
    The principle of "Code for Tomorrow" is not a principle of agile modeling because agile modeling emphasizes on creating simple and effective models that are just sufficient for the current needs, rather than focusing on creating complex and detailed models for the future. The main goal of agile modeling is to deliver working software quickly, so the emphasis is on creating models that are useful in the present rather than investing time in creating models for future scenarios.

  • 11. 

    Which of these is most personalized?

    • A.

      Decision supports systems

    • B.

      Data processing systems

    • C.

      Management information systems

    • D.

      Expert systems

    Correct Answer
    A. Decision supports systems
    Explanation
    Decision support systems are the most personalized among the given options. These systems are designed to assist individuals or groups in making decisions by providing them with relevant information, analysis, and tools. Unlike data processing systems, which focus on processing and organizing data, decision support systems are tailored to the specific needs of the user, providing personalized recommendations and insights. Similarly, management information systems provide information to support managerial decision-making, but they may not offer the same level of personalization as decision support systems. Expert systems, on the other hand, are designed to mimic human expertise in a specific domain, but they may not necessarily be personalized to individual users.
