Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which is FALSE statement about an MIS Infrastructure?

    • A.

      It is dynamic and continually changing

    • B.

      It reduces costs and improves productivity

    • C.

      It is static

    • D.

      It optimizes business operations

    Correct Answer
    C. It is static
    Explanation
    The statement "It is static" is false because an MIS infrastructure is not static, but rather dynamic and continually changing. This is because technology and business needs are constantly evolving, requiring the infrastructure to adapt and incorporate new technologies and processes. A static infrastructure would not be able to keep up with the changing demands of the business and would hinder its ability to optimize operations and improve productivity.

    • C.

      Backup is an exact copy of a system's information, where recovery is the ability to get a system up and running in the event of a system crash or failure

    • D.

      Recovery is mandatory, where backup is optional

    Correct Answer
    C. Backup is an exact copy of a system's information, where recovery is the ability to get a system up and running in the event of a system crash or failure
    Explanation
    A backup plan refers to creating an exact copy of a system's information, which can be used to restore the system in case of a crash or failure. On the other hand, a recovery plan involves the process of getting the system back up and running after a crash or failure occurs. In summary, the main difference between a backup plan and a recovery plan is that the former focuses on creating a copy of the system's information, while the latter focuses on the actions taken to restore the system.
