The place to start if you want a (new) test tool is:

  1. Attend a tool exhibition

  2. Invite a vendor to give a demo

  3. Analyse your needs and requirements

  4. Find out what your budget would be for the tool

When a new testing tool is purchased, it should be used first by:

  1. A small team to establish the best way to use the tool

  2. Everyone who may eventually have some use for the tool

  3. The independent testing team

  4. The vendor contractor to write the initial scripts


Correct Option: B
  1. The use of a variable before it has been defined

  2. Unreachable (“dead”) code

  3. Whether the value stored in a variable is correct

  4. The re-definition of a variable before it has been used


Correct Option: C

  2. Performed by customers at their software developer’s site

  3. Performed by an independent test team

  4. Useful to test bespoke software


Correct Option: A

Given the following types of tool, which tools would typically be used by developers and which by an independent test team: (i) static analysis (ii) performance testing (iii) test management (iv) dynamic analysis (v) test running (vi) test data preparation

  1. developers would typically use i, iv and vi; test team ii, iii and v

  2. developers would typically use i and iv; test team ii, iii, v and vi

  3. developers would typically use i, ii, iii and iv; test team v and vi

  4. developers would typically use ii, iv and vi; test team I, ii and v


Correct Option: B
  1. finding faults in the system

  2. ensuring that the system is acceptable to all users

  3. testing the system with other systems

  4. testing for a business perspective


Correct Option: D
  1. black box design techniques all have an associated measurement technique

  2. white box design techniques all have an associated measurement technique

  3. black box measurement techniques all have an associated test design technique

  4. white box measurement techniques all have an associated test design technique


Correct Option: A

Which of the following statements is NOT true:

  1. inspection is the most formal review process

  2. inspections should be led by a trained leader

  3. managers can perform inspections on management documents

  4. inspection is appropriate even when there are no written documents


Correct Option: D

AI Explanation

To answer this question, you need to understand the concept of inspections and review processes. Let's go through each option to understand why it is correct or incorrect:

Option A) Inspection is the most formal review process - This option is incorrect. Inspections are a type of review process, but they are not necessarily the most formal. Other review processes, such as audits, can be more formal depending on the context.

Option B) Inspections should be led by a trained leader - This option is correct. Inspections should be led by a trained leader who is familiar with the inspection process and can effectively guide the team through the review.

Option C) Managers can perform inspections on management documents - This option is correct. Managers can perform inspections on management documents as part of the review and quality assurance processes.

Option D) Inspection is appropriate even when there are no written documents - This option is incorrect. Inspections typically involve the review of written documents, such as code, designs, or specifications. Without written documents, there would be nothing to inspect.

The correct answer is D. This option is incorrect because inspections require written documents to review and inspect.

  1. generating expected outputs

  2. replaying inputs according to a programmed script

  3. comparison of expected outcomes with actual outcomes

  4. recording test inputs


Correct Option: A

The difference between re-testing and regression testing is

  1. re-testing is running a test again; regression testing looks for unexpected side

  2. re-testing looks for unexpected side effects; regression testing is repeating

  3. re-testing is done after faults are fixed; regression testing is done earlier

  4. re-testing uses different environments, regression testing uses the same


Correct Option: A

Expected results are:

  1. only important in system testing

  2. only used in component testing

  3. most useful when specified in advance

  4. derived from the code


Correct Option: C

AI Explanation

To answer this question, you need to understand the concept of expected results in software testing.

Expected results are the predicted outcomes or behavior of a system or component under test. They are typically determined in advance based on the requirements or specifications of the system.

Let's go through each option to understand why it is correct or incorrect:

Option A) only important in system testing - This option is incorrect because expected results are important in all types of testing, not just system testing.

Option B) only used in component testing - This option is incorrect because expected results are used in all types of testing, not just component testing.

Option C) most useful when specified in advance - This option is correct because expected results are most useful when they are specified in advance. By defining the expected results before the testing phase, testers can compare the actual results with the expected results to determine if the system or component is functioning correctly.

Option D) derived from the code - This option is incorrect because expected results are not derived from the code itself. They are determined based on the requirements or specifications of the system, not the code.

The correct answer is C) most useful when specified in advance. This option is correct because expected results are most effective when they are defined before the testing phase, allowing testers to compare the actual results with the expected results.

Test managers should not:

  1. report on deviations from the project plan

  2. sign the system off for release

  3. re-allocate resource to meet original plans

  4. raise incidents on faults that they have found


Correct Option: C
  1. a dynamic analysis tool

  2. a debugging tool

  3. a test management tool

  4. a configuration management tool


Correct Option: D
  1. how to fix the fault

  2. how to reproduce the fault

  3. test environment details

  4. severity, priority


Correct Option: A

Which expression best matches the following characteristics or review processes: 1. led by author 2. undocumented 3. no management participation 4. led by a trained moderator or leader 5. uses entry exit criteria s) inspection t) peer review u) informal review v) walkthrough

  1. s = 4, t = 3, u = 2 and 5, v = 1

  2. s = 4 and 5, t = 3, u = 2, v = 1

  3. s = 1 and 5, t = 3, u = 2, v = 4

  4. s = 5, t = 4, u = 3, v = 1 and 2


Correct Option: B
  1. performance, load and stress testing

  2. requirements-based testing

  3. usability testing

  4. top-down integration testing


Correct Option: D
  1. expected outcomes are defined by the software’s behaviour

  2. expected outcomes are derived from a specification, not from the code

  3. expected outcomes include outputs to a screen and changes to files and

  4. expected outcomes should be predicted before a test is run


Correct Option: A

The standard that gives definitions of testing terms is:

  1. ISO/IEC 12207

  2. BS7925-1

  3. BS7925-2

  4. ANSI/IEEE 829


Correct Option: B

The cost of fixing a fault:

  1. Is not important

  2. Increases as we move the product towards live use

  3. Decreases as we move the product towards live use

  4. Is more expensive if found in requirements than functional design


Correct Option: B
