Calculate the function point value for the above project. Assume an average
complexity for all “technical complexity factors” (that is 2.5).

We won't do your work for you here. Assuming this is for a class, the formula for calculating a function point value would have been discussed/presented by your instructor, wasn't it? If not, you can easily search the Internet for that information.

BTW, I don't know of any agile methods that recommend the use of function points. That's more of a "traditional" metric, if anything. I tried using them a long time ago but never really saw that they were worth the time and effort in counting and calculating them since the estimates you came up with using them turned out to be not much better than SWAGs (Simple Wild-Ass Guess) anyway.

Here's a page that will do the calculations for you: http://groups.engin.umd.umich.edu/CIS/course.des/cis525/js/f00/artan/functionpoints.htm

If you go through the 14 questions and honestly try to answer them, I don't see what you'd come with as being a whole lot less of a SWAG than what you'd get by throwing darts at a bunch of balloons, each marked with a number from 0 to 5.
