Software Engineering Questions – Set 4

Dear Aspirants,
Welcome to the Professional Knowledge Section in Affairscloud.com. Here we are providing sample questions in Software Engineering. It will be useful for the upcoming SBI Assistant Manager(System) and IBPS SO(IT Officer) examinations. We have also included some important questions that are repeatedly asked in previous exams.

  1. When elements of module are grouped together, which are activated  sequentially in order to perform a task is known as?
    A. Functional Cohesion
    B. Temporal Cohesion
    C. Logical Cohesion
    D. Procedural Cohesion
    E. None of the Above
    Answer & Explanation
    D. Procedural Cohesion
    Explanation:
    When elements of module are grouped together, which are activated sequentially in order to perform a task is known as Procedural Cohesion.cohesion refers to the degree to which the elements of a module belong together.

    C. Logical Cohesion
    D. Procedural Cohesion
    E. None of the Above
    Answer & Explanation
    B. Temporal Cohesion
    Explanation:
    All statements are activated at a single time is termed as Temporal Cohesion
  3. A module has _______if the elements of module have no meaningful relationship to one another.
    A. Functional Cohesion
    B. Temporal Cohesion
    C. Logical Cohesion
    D. Procedural Cohesion
    E. Coincidental Cohesion
    Answer & Explanation
    E. Coincidental Cohesion
    Explanation:
    A module has Coincidental Cohesion if the elements of module have no meaningful relationship to one another.
  4.  In __________, all of the elements of, module contribute to a single, well-defined task?
    A. Functional Cohesion
    B. Temporal Cohesion
    C. Logical Cohesion
    D. Procedural Cohesion
    E. Coincidental Cohesion
    Answer & Explanation
    A. Functional Cohesion
    Explanation:
    In Functional Cohesion, all of the elements of, module contribute to a single, well-defined task
  5. In which of the following cohesion the elements of a module perform different functions, but each function references the same input or output?
    A. Functional Cohesion
    B. Communicational Cohesion
    C. Logical Cohesion
    D. Procedural Cohesion
    E. Coincidental Cohesion
    Answer & Explanation
    B. Communicational Cohesion
    Explanation:
    In Communicational cohesion the elements of a module perform different functions, but each function references the same input or output
  6. In ________ module elements perform similar activities and in which the activities to be executed are chosen from outside the module.
    A. Functional Cohesion
    B. Communicational Cohesion
    C. Logical Cohesion
    D. Procedural Cohesion
    E. Coincidental Cohesion
    Answer & Explanation
    C. Logical Cohesion
    Explanation:
    In Logical Cohesion module elements perform similar activities and in which the activities to be executed are chosen from outside the module.
  7. In ________ module elements are related such that output data from one function serves as the input data to the next function.
    A. Sequential Cohesion
    B. Communicational Cohesion
    C. Logical Cohesion
    D. Procedural Cohesion
    E. Coincidental Cohesion
    Answer & Explanation
    A. Sequential Cohesion
    Explanation:
    In sequential module elements are related such that output data from one function serves as the input data to the next function.
  8. Which of the following describes a method of development that is linear and sequential?
    A. Water fall
    B. Spiral
    C. RAD
    D. Incremental
    E. None of these
    Answer & Explanation
    A. Water fall
    Explanation:
    The waterfall model is a sequential (non-iterative) design process, used in software development processes.
  9. Which of the following is a risk-driven process model generator for software projects?
    A. Water fall
    B. Spiral
    C. RAD
    D. Incremental
    E. None of these
    Answer & Explanation
    B. Spiral
    Explanation:
    Spiral model is a risk-driven process model generator for software projects.
  10. Which of the following is a type of incremental model?
    A. Water fall
    B. Spiral
    C. RAD
    D. Incremental
    E. None of these
    Answer & Explanation
    C. RAD
    Explanation:
    RAD model is Rapid Application Development model. It is a type of incremental model.
