3 / 40

3. You want to estimate the test effort for the new project using estimation based on ratios. You calculate the test-to-development effort ratio using averaged data for both development effort and test effort from four historical projects similar to the new one.

Select ONE option.

5 / 40

5. You are testing a system that calculates the final course grade for a given student.

The final grade is assigned based on the final result, according to the following rules:

• 0 – 50 points: failed
• 51 – 60 points: fair
• 61 – 70 points: satisfactory
• 71 – 80 points: good
• 81 – 90 points: very good
• 91 – 100 points: excellent

You have prepared the following set of test cases:

What is the 2-value Boundary Value Analysis (BVA) coverage for the final result that is achieved with the existing test cases?

Select ONE option.

6 / 40

6. Which of the following are product risks?

Select TWO options.

7 / 40

7. Which of the following is NOT a benefit of static testing?

Select ONE option.

8 / 40

8. Customers of the TestWash car wash chain have cards with a record of the number of washes they have bought so far. The initial value is 0. After entering the car wash, the system increases the number on the card by one. This value represents the number of the current wash. Based on this number the system decides what discount the customer is entitled to.

For every tenth wash the system gives a 10% discount, and for every twentieth wash, the system gives a further 40% discount (i.e., a 50% discount in total).

Which of the following sets of input data (understood as the numbers of the current wash) achieves the highest equivalence partition coverage?

Select ONE option.

9 / 40

9. Which test activity involves working with test data requirements, test conditions, test environment requirements and test cases?

Select ONE option.

10 / 40

10. Which of the following is an example of how product risk analysis influences thoroughness and scope of testing?

Select ONE option.

12. Which of the following pieces of information contained in a test progress report is the LEAST useful for business representatives?

Select ONE option.

13 / 40

13. Which of the following BEST fits as an element of the checklist used in checklist-based testing?

Select ONE option.

15. Which of the following is a benefit of early and frequent feedback?

Select ONE option.

16 / 40

16. Given the following example defects:

i. Two different parts of the design specification disagree due to the complexity of the design
ii. A response time is too long and so makes users lose patience
iii. A path in the code cannot be reached during execution
iv. A variable is declared but never subsequently used in the program
v. The amount of memory needed by the program to generate a report is too high

Which of the following BEST identifies example defects that could be found by static testing (rather than dynamic testing)?

Select ONE option.
