  • 1. 

    Briefly explain the different stages of software development life cycle.

  • 2. 

    What are the differences between Waterfall model and the incremental model?

  • 3. 

    SDLC stands for :

    • A.

      Software design life cycle

    • B.

      Software development life cycle

    • C.

      System design life cycle

    • D.

      System development life cycle

    Correct Answer
    B. Software development life cycle
    Explanation
    SDLC stands for Software Development Life Cycle. It is a systematic approach to develop software by following a set of processes, methodologies, and guidelines. It encompasses all the phases involved in software development, such as requirement gathering, system design, coding, testing, deployment, and maintenance. The SDLC ensures that the software is developed efficiently, meets the client's requirements, and is of high quality.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    How many steps are in the software development life cycle (SDLC)?

    • A.

      4

    • B.

      5

    • C.

      6

    • D.

      10

    Correct Answer
    C. 6
    Explanation
    The software development life cycle (SDLC) is a process that outlines the various stages involved in developing software. It typically includes requirements gathering, design, coding, testing, deployment, and maintenance. These six stages are essential in ensuring the successful development and implementation of software. Therefore, the correct answer is 6.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The first step in the software development life cycle (SDLC) is: 

    • A.

      Analysis.

    • B.

      Design.

    • C.

      Problem/Opportunity Identification.

    • D.

      Development and Documentation.

    Correct Answer
    C. Problem/Opportunity Identification.
    Explanation
    The first step in the software development life cycle (SDLC) is problem/opportunity identification. This step involves identifying and understanding the problem or opportunity that the software is intended to address. It involves gathering requirements, conducting research, and analyzing the current situation to determine the need for the software. This step is crucial as it sets the foundation for the rest of the SDLC phases, such as analysis, design, development, and documentation, which come after problem/opportunity identification.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Enhancements, upgrades, and bug fixes are done during the ____________ step in the SDLC. 

    • A.

      Maintenance and Evaluation

    • B.

      Problem/Opportunity Identification

    • C.

      Design

    • D.

      Development and Documentation

    Correct Answer
    A. Maintenance and Evaluation
    Explanation
    During the Maintenance and Evaluation step in the SDLC, enhancements, upgrades, and bug fixes are carried out. This step involves monitoring and maintaining the software system to ensure its smooth functioning and to address any issues that may arise. It also includes evaluating the system's performance and making necessary improvements to enhance its efficiency and effectiveness.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which is not a software life cycle model?

    • A.

      Spiral Model

    • B.

      Waterfall model

    • C.

      Prototyping Model

    • D.

      Capability maturity model

    Correct Answer
    D. Capability maturity model
    Explanation
    The Capability Maturity Model (CMM) is not a software life cycle model. It is a framework used to assess and improve an organization's software development processes. The CMM focuses on process improvement and maturity levels, rather than providing a specific model for software development. In contrast, the Spiral Model, Waterfall Model, and Prototyping Model are all examples of software life cycle models that provide structured approaches for developing software.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    ____________ manage the system development, assign staff, manage  the budget and reporting, and ensure that deadlines are met.

    • A.

      Project managers

    • B.

      Network engineers

    • C.

      Graphic designers

    • D.

      Systems analysts

    Correct Answer
    A. Project managers
    Explanation
    Project managers are responsible for overseeing and managing the entire system development process. They assign tasks to staff members, manage the budget and reporting, and ensure that all deadlines are met. They play a crucial role in coordinating and facilitating the various aspects of a project, ensuring that it is completed successfully and within the allocated resources.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Debugging is: 

    • A.

      Creating program code.

    • B.

      Finding and correcting errors in the program code.

    • C.

      Identifying the task to be computerized.

    • D.

      Creating the algorithm.

    Correct Answer
    B. Finding and correcting errors in the program code.
    Explanation
    Debugging is the process of finding and correcting errors in the program code. This involves identifying and fixing any mistakes or bugs that may be causing the program to not function as intended. It is an essential step in the software development process to ensure that the program runs smoothly and produces the desired results. Debugging involves analyzing the code, identifying the cause of the error, and making the necessary corrections to resolve the issue.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Actual programming of software code is done during the ____________ step in the SDLC. 

    • A.

      Maintenance and Evaluation

    • B.

      Design

    • C.

      Analysis

    • D.

      Development and Documentation

    Correct Answer
    D. Development and Documentation
    Explanation
    During the development and documentation step in the SDLC, the actual programming of software code takes place. This is the phase where the software is built based on the design and analysis done in the previous steps. The development process involves writing and testing the code to ensure it functions correctly. Documentation is also created during this step to provide information about the software, such as user manuals and technical specifications.
