Size is counted on the basis of Object Point in which of the following models?

• A.

Comprehensive Cost Estimation Model

• B.

Application Composition Estimation Model

• C.

Early design estimation model

• D.

Post architecture estimation model

B. Application Composition Estimation Model
Explanation
The correct answer is Application Composition Estimation Model. In this model, the size is counted on the basis of Object Point. Object Point is a unit of measurement that quantifies the functionality provided by a software application. It takes into account the number and complexity of objects in the application, such as inputs, outputs, inquiries, files, and interfaces. By counting the object points, the size of the application can be estimated, which is useful for cost estimation and project planning.

In function point analysis, number of Complexity adjustment factor are

• A.

10

• B.

12

• C.

20

• D.

14

D. 14
Explanation
In function point analysis, the complexity adjustment factor (CAF) is used to adjust the function points based on the complexity of the software being measured. The CAF takes into account various factors such as the experience of the development team, the complexity of the requirements, and the overall complexity of the software. The question asks for the number of complexity adjustment factors, and the correct answer is 14. This means that there are 14 different factors that can be considered when adjusting the function points in function point analysis.

Which model was used during the early stages of software engineering, when prototyping of user interfaces, consideration of software and system interaction, assessment of performance, and evaluation of technology maturity were paramount.

• A.

Early design stage model

• B.

Post-architecture-stage model

• C.

Application composition model

• D.

None of the above

A. Early design stage model
Explanation
During the early stages of software engineering, when prototyping of user interfaces, consideration of software and system interaction, assessment of performance, and evaluation of technology maturity were paramount, the Early design stage model was used. This model focuses on the initial design phase of the software development process, where the emphasis is on gathering requirements, creating prototypes, and evaluating the feasibility and effectiveness of different design options. It is a crucial stage in software engineering as it sets the foundation for the rest of the development process.

• 4.

To compute the effort in persons-month, which of the following is correct formula:

• A.

E=NOP*PROD

• B.

E=NOP/PROD

• C.

E=PROD/NOP

• D.

E=NOP*PROD*BALANCE FACTOR

B. E=NOP/PROD
Explanation
The correct formula to compute the effort in persons-month is E=NOP/PROD. This formula divides the number of person-hours (NOP) by the productivity rate (PROD) to determine the effort required. It suggests that the effort is inversely proportional to the productivity rate, meaning that as the productivity rate increases, the effort required decreases. This formula is commonly used in project management to estimate the amount of work needed to complete a project based on the productivity rate of the team.

In Putnam resource allocation model, Rayleigh curve is modeled by the equation

• A.

M(t)= 2at e power(-at power (2))

• B.

M(t)= 2Kt e power(-at power (2))

• C.

M(t)= 2Kat e power (-at power(2))

• D.

M(t)= 2t e power (-at power(2))

C. M(t)= 2Kat e power (-at power(2))
Explanation
The correct answer is M(t)= 2Kat e power (-at power(2)). This equation represents the Rayleigh curve in the Putnam resource allocation model. The parameter "a" determines the shape of the curve, with larger values of "a" resulting in a narrower curve. The term "K" represents the maximum value of the curve, which occurs at t=0. The exponential term (-at^2) controls the decay of the curve over time. Overall, this equation accurately represents the Rayleigh curve in the context of the Putnam resource allocation model.

• 6.

Which one is not a size measure for software

• A.

LOC

• B.

FUNCTION POINT

• C.

CYCLOMATIC COMPLEXITY

• D.

OBJECT POINT

C. CYCLOMATIC COMPLEXITY
Explanation
Cyclomatic complexity is not a size measure for software. It is a software metric that measures the complexity of a program by counting the number of independent paths through the code. Size measures for software, on the other hand, typically refer to metrics that quantify the size or volume of the software, such as lines of code (LOC), function points, or object points.

In COCOMO model, if project size is 600 KLOC,which mode is to be selected

• A.

Organic

• B.

Semidetached

• C.

Embedded

• D.

This size is not possible

C. Embedded
Explanation
Based on the COCOMO model, the mode to be selected for a project size of 600 KLOC is "embedded". This mode is suitable for projects that involve complex and highly integrated systems, such as embedded software development for devices like smartphones or automotive systems. The "embedded" mode takes into account the challenges and complexities associated with such projects, including the need for specialized skills and the potential for greater risks and uncertainties. Therefore, for a project size of 600 KLOC, the "embedded" mode would be the most appropriate choice.

Rate this question:

• 8.

UML stands for

• A.

• B.

Universal Modeling Language

• C.

Unified Micro Language

• D.

Unified Modeling Language

D. Unified Modeling Language
Explanation
UML stands for Unified Modeling Language. UML is a standardized modeling language used in software engineering to visually represent the design of a system. It provides a set of graphical notations for creating models of software systems, including class diagrams, use case diagrams, sequence diagrams, and more. The use of UML helps in improving communication and understanding among stakeholders involved in the software development process.

Rate this question:

• 9.

Interface in UML can be represented as

• A.

Diamond

• B.

Circle

• C.

Rounded rectangle

• D.

Parallel lines

B. Circle
Explanation
In UML, an interface is represented by a circle. This symbolizes that an interface is a contract or agreement between classes, defining a set of methods that a class must implement. The circle shape is used to differentiate interfaces from classes, which are typically represented by rectangles in UML. The circle symbol also suggests the idea of a connection or communication between different classes, as interfaces are used to establish relationships and provide a common set of functionality.

While calculating Function point, which of the following is not correct

• A.

FP= UFP*CAF

• B.

Internal logic files and external interface files are same

• C.

FP is used to calculate size

• D.

CAF depends on various influence factors

B. Internal logic files and external interface files are same
Explanation
The given correct answer states that "Internal logic files and external interface files are the same" is not correct while calculating function points. This means that internal logic files and external interface files are not considered as the same entity in the calculation of function points. Function points are used to measure the size of a software project, and they are calculated by multiplying the unadjusted function points (UFP) with the complexity adjustment factor (CAF). The CAF depends on various influence factors.
