2. While orientating yourselves to the company’s work practices, you observe that they in fact do not conduct a few tests that they should in order to comply with the relevant safety standard. When you inquire about this from the project manager, he dismisses it saying that those tests are really unnecessary (and takes an unreasonably long time to conduct, as well as being superfluous) and that they have managed with the other tests for so long, without any problems.”

4. The software life cycle can be said to consist of a series of phases. The classical model is referred to as the waterfall model. Which phase may be defined as “The concept is explored and refined, and the client’s requirements are elicited?”
c.its ability to determine the client’s real needs
explanation:-the sole use of the rapid prototype is to determine what the client’s real needs are as rapidly as possible. the rapid prototype is then effectively discarded so its internal structure is not relevant.
6. The degree of interaction between two modules is known as
explanation:-the best way to test the software project management plan (spmp) is by a plan inspection by the sqa team. in order to further reduce risk the duration and cost estimates should further be independently computed by people other than the original project team.
17. Brooks’ view of the essence of software included
a. people, quality, process and productivity
B. performance, robustness, maintainability and reusability
c. complexity, conformity, changeability and invisibility
d. efficiency, reliability, usability and robustness
