    1. In SAS 9.2 it is not necessary to define dependencies between repositories?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In SAS 9.2, it is not necessary to define dependencies between repositories because SAS 9.2 uses a metadata server that automatically manages dependencies between repositories. This means that when one repository is updated or changed, the metadata server will automatically update any other repositories that are dependent on it. This eliminates the need for manually defining dependencies and ensures that changes made in one repository are reflected in all other repositories.
