  • 4. 

    The processing of a file should begin with the execution of  an OPEN statement

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the OPEN statement is used to establish a connection between a program and a file, allowing the program to access and manipulate the file's contents. Without executing the OPEN statement, the program would not be able to read from or write to the file. Therefore, it is necessary for the processing of a file to begin with the execution of an OPEN statement.

    • D.

      1 TIME

    • E.

      0 TIMES

    Correct Answer
    E. 0 TIMES
    Explanation
    The given code snippet will execute P2 0 times. This is because the loop condition states that P2 should be executed "UNTIL i < 10". Since the initial value of i is 1, which is not less than 10, the loop will not be entered and P2 will not be executed at all. Therefore, the correct answer is 0 TIMES.

    INITIALIZE Verb Serves as a Convenient Alternative to the Use of MOVE in PROCEDURE DIVISION

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the INITIALIZE verb in the PROCEDURE DIVISION of a COBOL program is used to set all the values of a group of variables to their initial values. This is a convenient alternative to using the MOVE verb to individually assign initial values to each variable. The INITIALIZE verb simplifies the code and makes it more readable by initializing multiple variables at once.

    • C.

      PERFORM

    • D.

      INCR

    Correct Answer
    A. SET

  • 11. 

    The  WRITE statement cannot be used for files opened in the I-O mode

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The WRITE statement is used to write data to a file. However, when a file is opened in the I-O (input-output) mode, it allows both reading and writing operations on the file. In this mode, the WRITE statement cannot be used because it is not allowed to write data to the file. Therefore, the statement "The WRITE statement cannot be used for files opened in the I-O mode" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Called Program can Call Other Programs, But Must Not Call the Calling Program

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because in programming, a called program can invoke or call other programs or functions to perform specific tasks. However, it is important to avoid calling the calling program to prevent creating an infinite loop or causing unexpected behavior. This practice helps maintain the flow and organization of the program, ensuring that each program or function is responsible for its own specific task and does not interfere with the calling program.
