B. Use only the design document as the oracle, since this should be a white-box test.

C. Use both the design document and the state transition diagram as oracles.

D. Use neither document as an oracle, but rely entirely on your understanding of the system.

You decide to use exploratory testing as a primary testing technique.

Which of the following statements is true about your test condition document or documents?

A. It will have three levels. The first level will be classic quality risks, the second will be level failure modes, and the third level will be the effects of those failure modes.
