Q. 123: You are implementing tests for an integrated system that will use three off-the-shelf components to manage a bank's accounts-receivable system. You have finished creating and sequencing your test procedures. The test environments and test data are ready. Your test management system, which includes tracking of all test results, is set up in the test lab. Your vendors have arranged to send you a CD-ROM with their product on it at the start of test execution, and then developers will e-mail patches to the components as defects are found.

Based on this information alone, which of the following pre-conditions for text execution night not be satisfied?

A. Implementation of testware
B. Proper test data and environment
C. Test object configuration management
D. Defect management

B. Boundary value tests select both valid and invalid representatives of each equivalence class, which equivalence class partitioning alone might miss.

C. Boundary value tests select extreme members of an equivalence class, while equivalence class partitioning alone selects central members.

D. Boundary value tests are not related to equivalence class partitions, since equivalence partitions are only defined on sets which do not have ordering of their members.

Q. 125: Which of the statements are true about test cases?

1. All test cases should be automated
II. Test cases should be repeatable

Q. 128: Consider the following excerpt from an e-mail:
