Which of the following is NOT an advantage of using shared, dynamically linked libraries as opposed to using statically linked libraries ?


Smaller sizes of executable files


Lesser overall page fault rate in the system


Faster program startup


Existing programs need not be re-linked to take advantage of newer versions of libraries

Answer: (C)


Refer Static and Dynamic Libraries In Non-Shared (static) libraries, since library code is connected at compile time, the final executable has no dependencies on the library at run time i.e. no additional run-time loading costs, it means that you don’t need to carry along a copy of the library that is being used and you have everything under your control and there is no dependency.
