  1. 4.          Draw the CFG of the following code segment and find

McCabe Cyclomatic complexity by applying all the methods.

test(int b.int c,int x)

{ .. b : = c + 5;

While(x ! = 1) { x = x -1;

If ( x = 7) x : = 8;

( Long Answer Type Questions )

Answer any three of the following.                                                                                                                                                                                            a) Explain Meta Model.

b)          A Library Membership Software (LMS) should support the following three options :

(i)           New member

(ii)         Renewal

(iii)        Cancel membership.

When the new member option is selected, the software should ask for the member s name, address and phone number. If proper information is entered, the software should create a membership record for the new member with membership id and print a bill for the annual membership charge and the security deposit payable. If the renewal option is chosen, the LMS should ask for the membership id. If the membership id is valid, then the membership expiry date in the membership record should be updated and the annual membership charge payable by f the member should be printed. If the membership id is not valid, an error message will be displayed. If the cancel membership option is selected, the system should ask for the membership id again. If the membership id is valid, then the membership cancellation process can be executed and a cheque for the balance amount due to the member is printed and membership record will be deleted.

c)           Explain unit testing, system testing and acceptance testing. 6Draw Decision Tree and also implement Decision Table for the system.                                                                                                           3

d)          What is coding standard ? What are the contents of coding header ?   2+1

  1. 9.                          a) Explain different types of ‘performance testing’.                          3

b)           Explain ‘equivalence class partitioning’ with an example.

c)           Differentiate between ‘code walkthrough’ and ‘code inspection’. 2

d)          A software product’s development cost is Rs. 50,000 and total size is 125 KLOC, During maintenance, to correct the errors, some coding portions has been deleted and that size is 15 KLOC. After correction, a new perfection module will be implemented and for this module extra 55 KLOC size of code has been added. Calculate the software product’s maintenance cost. 7

  1. 10. a) Who are the different categories of users of the SRS document ? What are their expectations from the SRS document ?                            5

  1. 12.        a} Draw the context diagram and Level 1 DFD for the

following Mail Order Processing System.

“HMV Records is a mail-order company that distributes CDs and tapes at discount prices to record club members. When an order processing clerk receives an order form, he or she verifies that the sender is a club member by checking the member file. If the sender is not a member, the clerk returns the order along with a membership application form. If the customer is a member, the clerk verifies the order item data by checking thtf Item file. Then the clerk enters the order data and saves it to the Daily Order file. The clerk also prints an invoice and shipping list for each order, which are forwarded to order fulfilmentn.
