7 / 40

7. You are testing a PIN validator, which accepts valid PINs and rejects invalid PINs. A PIN is a sequence of digits. A PIN is valid if it consists of four digits, at least two of which are different. You have identified the following valid equivalence partitions:

Variable: PIN code length

• The partition “length correct” - four-digit PINs
• The partition “length incorrect” - PINs with length other than 4

Variable: Number of different digits

• The partition “number of different digits correct” - PINs with at least two different digits
• The partition “number of different digits incorrect” - PINs with all digits being the same

Which of the following is a MINIMUM set of input test data that covers all identified equivalence partitions?

Select ONE option.

13. Which of the following provides the BEST example of a scenario-oriented acceptance criterion?

Select ONE option.

14 / 40

14. At the beginning of each iteration, the team estimates the amount of work (in person-days) they will need to complete during the iteration. Let E(n) be the estimated amount of work for iteration n, and let A(n) be the actual amount of work done in iteration n. From the third iteration, the team uses the following estimation model based on extrapolation:

 

 

The graph shows the estimated and actual amount of work for the first four iterations.

What is the estimated amount of work for iteration #5?

Select ONE option.

15 / 40

15. Which of the following is MOST likely to be a benefit of test automation?

 

Select ONE option.

16 / 40

16. W A developer was asked to implement the following business rule:
