how long does the software project take to complete

```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:
Lines of code(LOC)=20,000
We can write it KLOC = 20K,
Multiplicative value 'a' = 2.4,
Exponential value 'b' = 1.05,
Multiplicative value 'c' = 2.5,
Exponential value 'd' = 0.38.

Now put in the formula:

Step 1:
Basic COCOMO formula for Effort = a×(LOC in K)b
= 2.4×(20)1.05
= 55.756
Now Effort Value is = 55.756

Step 2:
Formula for calculate Development time  = c×(Effort)d in month.
=  2.5×( 55.756)0.38
= 11.52 in months

Development time = 11.52 in months

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