I came across a following question bparanj quiz for IBM 486

For showing scenarios, which one of the following OOAD artifacts is the MOST useful?


Interaction Diagrams
Activity Diagrams
Use Cases
State Diagrams
Class Diagrams

This question has 1 correct answer.

Reference: Larman, p47 Ans is Use Cases

But on page 8
Larman says that use cases are not an object oriented artifact



Please clarify..

They are not an object oriented artifact (they are plain text stories), but they are the primary means to represent a scenario in OOAD.
