    True or False:  Analyze the statement and determine whether it is True or False:The word system, as it is used in system analysis, necessarily mean either a computer system or a group of computer programs.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the word "system" in system analysis does not necessarily mean either a computer system or a group of computer programs. System analysis is a broader concept that involves analyzing and understanding any kind of system, whether it be a computer system, a business system, or any other type of system.

    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because a system is indeed a collection of interconnected elements that work together to perform a specific activity, function, or operation. These elements can be physical components, software, or even abstract concepts. The interconnections between these elements allow them to communicate and cooperate in order to achieve a common goal or purpose. Therefore, the given statement accurately defines what a system is.

    The characteristic of the system as it interacts with others around to receive inputs and produce outputs is referred to as ____________________.

    Correct Answer
    Open System
    Explanation
    An open system is a characteristic of a system that interacts with its environment by receiving inputs and producing outputs. Unlike a closed system, an open system is dynamic and adaptable, allowing for the exchange of information, energy, and resources with its surroundings. This interaction with the external environment enables the system to respond to changes, learn from feedback, and evolve over time.
