a) User and Developer
b) Functional and Non-functional
c) Enduring and Volatile
Explanation: Enduring requirements are core requirements & are related to main activity of the organization while volatile requirements are likely to change during software development life cycle or after delivery of the product.
2. Considering the example of issue/return of a book, cataloging etc. in a library management.What type of management requirement is being depicted here?
Explanation: For library management system issue/return of a book, cataloging etc. are core activities and are stable for any system.
3. Why is Requirements Management Important ? It is due to the changes
a) to the environment
b) in technology
c) in customer’s expectations
d) in all of the mentioned.
Explanation: Systems continue to be built as the advancement of new products being launched in the market and so does the market changes, the technology and in turn customer’s expectation.
4. Requirements Management is a prerequisite for Quality-Oriented Development.
Explanation: Quality makes no sense without reference to requirements, which means quality-oriented development is requirements-driven development, thus requirements management is a prerequisite for quality-oriented development.
5. Requirements traceability is one of the most important part requirement management. It may also be referred to as the heart of requirement management.
Explanation: Requirements traceability refers to the ability to describe and follow the life of a requirement in both forwards and backwards direction. Requirements can be traced from its origins, through its development and specification, to its subsequent deployment and use, and through periods of ongoing refinement and iteration in any of these phases.
6. Requirements Management has a high initial start-up cost but does not need ongoing funding throughout a project.
Explanation: Requirements Management needs continued funding throughout a project.Project funding is often limited at the onset of a project, restricted to those aspects of the project which are tangible and visible, and subsequently allocated in a phase-by-phase manner.
7. Which of the following is not a Requirement Management workbench tool ?

d) RDD 100
Explanation: Rational Suite is an environment tool for requirement management.
8. Which of the following is a requirement management activity ?
c) Construction and Test
d) All of the mentioned
Explanation: All the options are the activities of requirement management.
9. What functionality of Requirement Management Tool (RMT) is depicted by the statement: “the tool should be able to automatically detect relations between artifacts. For example information retrieval techniques, monitoring of change history, naming schemas or model transformations.”
a) Automatic Link Detection
b) Documentation Support
c) Graphical Representation
d) Automatic Link Creation and Change
Explanation: DOORS is one such tool that supports Automatic Link Detection.
10. According to a statistical report: “over 30% of all software projects are cancelled before completion and over 70% of the remainder fail to deliver expected features”. What must be the reason for such a situation ?
a) Poor change management
b) Poor requirements management
c) Poor quality control
d) All of the mentioned
Explanation: Fundamental to the problem mentioned in the statistical report is poor requirements management. Option a and c are its sub parts.
