1.Answer :       (c)
Reason:    Transactions produce loads of data everyday and Transaction processing systems aim at improving the routine business activities.

2.Answer :       (d)
Reason:    Prototyping is adopted if information requirements are not well-defined.

3.Answer :       (a)
Reason:    structured programming means splitting the overall task into well-defined subtasks.

4.Answer :       (a)
Reason:    Third party enquiry is not a technique to capture the requirements of the user.

5.Answer :       (e)
Reason:    All the given questions are useful in evaluating the DFDs.

6.Answer :       (d)
Reason:    extensive use of GOTO leads to spaghetti code.

7.Answer :       (b)
Reason:    data dictionary is for storing data about data where as data store is where actual data is stored .

8.Answer :       (b)
Reason:    After matching the both sides the correct option is (b).

9.Answer :       (c)
Reason:    During the Feasibility study the financial feasibility is also measured


  1. This excellent book is very, very in systems analysis will teach you from scratch till the end systems analysis, one of the best books in the world

    This instruction book Visual Paradigm software used by most systems analysts work for the analysis of the system

  2. Nice collection of MCQs on SAD!!
    Great work done, keep it up:-)
    Would also like to say Many Thanks for these questions.
