The quiz questions are provided for your further understanding.


  • 1. Why does proper design often take longer than writing the program code?

  • 2. Where does a programmer first begin determining the user’s requirements?

  • 3. True or false: Proper top-down design forces you to put off details as long as possible.

  • 4. How does top-down design differ from pseudocode?

  • 5. What is the purpose of RAD?

  • 6. True or false: You do not have to add code to any system that you design with RAD.

  • 7. Which uses symbols: a flowchart or pseudocode?

  • 8. True or false: You can flowchart both program logic as well as real-world procedures.

  • 9. True or false: Your user will help you create a program’s output if you let the user work with an output prototype.

  • 10. What is the final step of the programming process (before testing the final result)?


  • 1. The more thorough the design, the more quickly the programming staff can write the program.

  • 2. A programmer often begins defining the output of the proposed system.

  • 3. True

  • 4. Top-down design enables a program designer to incrementally generate all aspects of a program’s requirements. Pseudocode enables you to specify the logic of a program once the program’s design has been accomplished using tools such as top-down design.

  • 5. RAD provides a way to rapidly develop systems and move quickly from the design stage to a finished product. RAD tools are not yet advanced enough to handle most programming tasks, although RAD can make designing systems easier than designing without RAD tools.

  • 6. False. RAD requires quite a bit of programming in many instances once its work is done.

  • 7. A flowchart uses symbols.

  • 8. True

  • 9. True

  • 10. The final step of programming is writing the program code.
