Question 2. Question : (TCO 3) By definition, a systems analyst is a business professional who:
- manages the development and use of an information system.
- uses analysis and design techniques to solve business problems using technology.
- uses an information system to perform day-to-day business operations.
- authorizes the use of corporate funds for information technology projects.
Question 3. Question : (TCO 3) The first step in a systems analyst’s approach to problem-solving is to:
- research and understand the problem.
- verify that the benefits of solving the problem outweigh the costs.
- develop a set of possible solutions.
- implement a solution.
Question 4. Question : (TCO 3) An information system is defined as a collection of interrelated components that:
- transform management reports into business transactions.
- allow business customers to communicate directly with suppliers.
- collect, process, store, and output information for performing business tasks.
- develop analysis and design specifications.
Question 5. Question : (TCO 3) Functional decomposition is defined as a process of:
- assembling a system out of smaller subsystems.
- integrating systems into a larger super system.
- connecting interrelated components to form a system.
- dividing a system into components based on subsystems.
Question 6. Question : (TCO 3) A subsystem is defined as a system that:
- is part of a larger system.
- contains other systems.
- has interrelated components.
- can be functionally decomposed.
Question 7. Question : (TCO 3) The separation between a system and its environment that is crossed by inputs and outputs, is the:
- system architecture.
- system filter.
- system membrane.
- system boundary.
Question 8. Question : (TCO 3) A system that records accounting information needed to produce financial statements is:
- an accounting and financial management system.

1. Question : (TCO 3) The central idea underlying the concept of the systems development life cycle is:
- that a larger system can be divided into smaller subsystems.
- that an information system has a life of its own that follows a definite progression.
- that the performance of a business process can be improved by changing how work is done.
- that an information system can be viewed as a collection of interacting objects.
Question 2. Question : (TCO 3) The _______________ approach to systems development assumes that a project cannot be fully planned in advance, so plans must be adjusted as the project proceeds.

- adaptive SDLC approaches.
- predictive SDLC approaches.
- linear SDLC approaches.
Question 6. Question : (TCO 3) A project having high technical risk, in which the requirements and needs are uncertain, would be best suited to which SDLC approach?
- A waterfall approach
- A predictive approach
- An adaptive approach
- A sequential approach
Question 7. Question : (TCO 3) The phases of the Unified Process life cycle are:
