You can create one function and one CALL routine in a single FCMP procedure step.

a.True

b.False

For above question in fourth version of prep guide, the answer is listed as False.

However, as I read the answer should be True.

Please let me know the correct answer. Thanks.

The wording is vague, which is probably what is causing your confusion. I suspect the author meant to write

> You can create** at most** one function and one CALL routine in a single FCMP procedure step.

Now the question is unambiguous. The answer is false because you can define multiple functions in a single call to PROC FCMP.

False is the right answer.

A single FCMP procedure can have any number of Functions and Call Routines.
