A software company needs to develop a

```Answer: Option II

Easy Explanation by SamagraCS Team:

Definition: Basic COCOMO Model
The basic COCOMO model gives an approximate estimate of the project parameters.
The basic COCOMO estimation model is given by the following expressions:

Formula,
Effort = a∗(KLOC)b // Formula for Calculate Effort,
Tdev = c∗(Effort)d // Formula for Calculate Development time in month.

Let’s Solve the Problem,
Given Parameters is:
Total Function Point =1000 // Function point means No. of
Function or Modules in Projects,
Each function point have approximate lines of code (LOC) = 50.
So Total LOC = 1000 X 50 = 50000.

Lines of code(LOC)=50000,
We can write it KLOC = 50K,
Multiplicative value 'a' = 1.4,
Exponential value 'b' = 1.0,
Multiplicative value 'c' = 3,
Exponential value 'd' = 0.33.

Now put in the formula:

Step 1:
Basic COCOMO formula for Effort = a(KLOC)b
= 1.4×(50)1.0
= 70
Now Effort Value is = 70

Step 2:
Formula for calculate Development time = c(Effort)d in month.
= 3(70)0.33
= 12.3 months

12.3 months.Approximately 12.2 month.

So, Option(II)is correct. ```
