Consider the following C program segment.
while(first <= last)
{
if (array[middle] < search)
first = middle + 1;
else if (array[middle] == search)
found = TRUE;
else last = middle - 1;
middle = (first + last)/2;
}
if (first > last) notPresent = TRUE; 
The cyclomatic complexity of the program segment is ________.

The following figure represents access graphs of two modules $$M1$$ and $$M2.$$ The filled circles represent methods and the unfilled circles represent attributes. If method m is moved to module $$M2$$ keeping the attributes where they are, what can we say about the average cohesion and coupling between modules in the system of two modules? A
There is no change.
B
Average cohesion goes up but coupling is reduced.
C
Average cohesion goes down and coupling also reduces.
D
Average cohesion and coupling increase.

The procedure given below is required to find and replace certain characters inside an input character string supplied in array $$A.$$ The characters to be replaced are supplied in array $$oldc,$$ while their respective replacement characters are supplied in array $$newc.$$ Array $$A$$ has a fixed length of five characters, while arrays $$oldc$$ and $$newc$$ contain three characters each. However, the procedure is flawed. void find_and_replace (char $$^ * A,$$ char $$^ * oldc,$$, char $$^ * newc$$)
$$\left\{ \, \right.$$ for (int $$i=0; i<5; i++$$)
for (int $$j=0; j<3; j++$$)
if ( $$A$$ [ $$i$$ ] $$==oldc$$ [ $$j$$ ] $$A$$ [ $$i$$ ]
$$=newc$$ [ $$j$$ ]; $$\left. \, \right\}$$

The procedure is tested with the following four test cases;
\eqalign{ & \left( 1 \right)\,\,\,oldc = ''abc'',\,\,newc\, = \,''dab'' \cr & \left( 2 \right)\,\,\,oldc\, = \,''cdc'',\,\,newc\, = \,''bed'' \cr & \left( 3 \right)\,\,\,oldc\, = \,''bca'',\,newc\, = \,''cda'' \cr & \left( 4 \right)\,\,\,oldc\, = \,''abc'',\,newc\, = \,''bac'' \cr}

The tester now tests the program on all input strings of length five consisting of characters $$'a', 'b', 'c', 'd'$$ and $$'c'$$ with duplicates allowed. If the tester carries out this testing with four test cases given above, how many test cases will be able to capture the flaw?

A
Only one
B
Only two
C
Only three
D
All four
