Could you pls tell the answer to the below question? I think it is a)computational complexity. Pls. let me know if it is correct.
Which one of the following attributes of a program can be inferred from its Cyclomatic complexity?
a) Computational complexity
b) Lines of code (LoC)
c) Executable code size
Cyclomatic complexity is a software metric (measurement), used to indicate the complexity of a program. It is a quantitative measure of the number of linearly independent paths through a program’s source code. It was developed by Thomas J. McCabe, Sr. in 1976.
Cyclomatic complexity – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
My professor told d) Understandability is the right answer. But I think both a)Computational complexity and d)Understandability could be answers. Anyway thanks for your reply.
Hi Sarah ,
The Cyclomatic Complexity Metric is a graphical means of evaluating the complexity of a function and also determining the completeness of coverage of tests for that function. This method is language independent and can be done manually with little difficulty.
