Correct option is (a) True

The explanation is: When FEM is used for solution of static problems, we deal with a set of simultaneous Linear Equations of the form KX=F, where K is stiffness Matrix, X is displacement matrix and F is load vector. The order of matrix K is very large and the methods available for solving the equation are divided into two types: direct and iterative. Direct methods are used for equations without any round of error and iterative methods are used for the equations which start with an initial approximation.
