  1. 1. PPSE Sample papers Principle and Practices in Software Engineering Question Set -1Answer ALL questions. PART A — (2 x 10 = 20 marks)1. Justify the term ‘‘Software is Engineered’’.2. Distinguish between process, methods, tools.3. Define software scope.4. Define process maturity. Indicate different process maturity levels of CMM/SEI.5. Give an example of a design fault that leads to failure.6. Distinguish between alpha testing and beta testing.7. What is Software Architecture?8. Define Software re–engineering.9. What is meant by software change?10. Write short notes on estimation models. PART B — (10 x 5 =50 marks) Answer Any Five1. (i) Discuss in detail the FAST method of requirement gathering with an illustration.(ii) Discuss in detail the Quality Function deployment.2. (a) List several software process paradigms. Explain how both waterfall model and prototyping model can be accommodatedin the spiral process model.(b) Write briefly about the utility of state transition diagram in analysis modeling activity.3. (a) (i) Describe the design process in software development.(ii) What are the characteristics and criteria for design? Or(b) (i) What are different activities in user interface design process?
