If a new version of a product is released by fixing the bugs in the previous release then it is termed as _________________

►Product Update
►Product Upgrade
►Defect Removal
►Product Performance

Question No: 9 ( Marks: 1 ) - Please choose one
When an Item is baselined, it becomes frozen, here frozen means, that the item can be changed only by creating an old version


Question No: 10 ( Marks: 1 ) - Please choose one
Configuration Item identification involves:

►Identifying the structure of the s/w system
►Uniquely identify individual components
►Uniquely identifying various revisions
►All of the given

Question No: 11 ( Marks: 1 ) - Please choose one
Incomplete Configuration identification documents may result in:

If Configuration item identification is not identified, it is possible to control changes and establish records.

► True
► False

Question No: 13 ( Marks: 1 ) - Please choose one

► Perceived quality
► Quantitatively measured quality

Question No: 14 ( Marks: 1 ) - Please choose one
Software Availability can be calculated by the following equation:

► Availability = (MTTR/MTTF) x 100
► Availability = (MTBF/MTTR) x 100
► Availability = (MTTF/MTBF) x 100
► Availability = (MTBF/MTTF) x 100

Question No: 15 ( Marks: 1 ) - Please choose one
Phase Index can be calculated by the help of the following formula, where
Ei the total number of errors uncovered during the ith step in the SE process
Si number of serious errors
Mi number of moderate errors
Ti number of minor errors
PSi product size at the ith step
ws, wm, wt weighting factors for serious, moderate, and minor errors

► PIi = ws(Si/Ei) + wm(Mi/Ei) + wt(Ti/Ei)
► PIi = ws(Si/Ei) + wm(Mi/Mi) + wt(Ti/T)
► PIi = ws(Si/Ei) + wm(Mi/Mi) + wt(Ti/Ei)
► PIi = ws(Si/S) + wm(Mi/M) + wt(Ti/E)

Question No: 16 ( Marks: 1 ) - Please choose one
The higher the Error Index, the higher will be the Defect Removal Efficiency

► True
► False

Question No: 17 ( Marks: 1 ) - Please choose one

The prototyping model of software development is

► a reasonable approach when requirements are well defined.
► a useful approach when a customer cannot define requirements clearly.
► the best approach to use for projects with large development teams.
► a risky model that rarely produces a meaningful product.
