1. C-Scrum

Scrum is an agile model that includes the process elements: backlog, sprint, and daily scrum meeting led by the scrum master. A backlog is a list of features that are to be developed for the program. Sprint is the mutually agreed unit of work and timeframe that defines a development cycle. Lastly, daily scrum is a daily project management meeting that reviews over issues and planning the next step.

2. C-Kanban

The Kanban system was first invented to help with lean manufacturing. The Kanban system uses Kanban boards and task cards to give a visual representation of what has been finished and what needs to be done. The Kanban model can be used with other SDLC models.

3. B-Waterfall

Sashimi is a variation of the waterfall model. Both models follow the same series of steps when developing a program. The difference between Sashimi and waterfall is in their project phases. As Sashimi allows for overlapping, this gives it the edge over waterfall with more collaboration and less documentation.

4. D-Staged Delivery

Staged Delivery is a prescriptive model because of its planned approach, defined structure, and expected set of activities and work products. An agile model is simpler to learn, has adaptive software processes, and emphasizes unique aspects of software development.

5. A-Evolutionary Prototyping

Evolutionary Prototyping allows for users to be unsure of what they want or need in a program. In this model, developers refine a prototype until acceptable for the user.
