The Function Point (FP) calculated for a software project are often used to obtain an estimate of Lines of Code (LOC) required for that project. Which of the following statements is FALSE in this context.

(A) The relationship between FP and LOC depends on the programming language used to implement the software.
(B) LOC requirement for an assembly language implementation will be more for a given FP value, than LOC for implementation in COBOL
(C) On an average, one LOC of C++ provides approximately 1.6 times the functionality of a single LOC of FORTRAN
(D) FP and LOC are not related to each other

Answer: (A)

Explanation: As language levels go up, fewer statements to code one Function Point are required.

For example, COBOL may requires about 105 statements per Function Point and php only 67.
