Q. 181: Assume you are testing a browser-based application that helps individuals track and manage their investment portfolios. Each user's data is stored in a central repository, and users log in to authenticate themselves prior

to accessing their portfolio information. Assume you are looking for bugs related to the accuracy of the investment performance calculations the application performs. Which of the following attacks would be most likely to find such bugs?

Q. 182: You are testing the check-out feature of an e-commerce application. The payment screen gathers the following information: credit card number and type, credit card expiration date, card verification number (CVV), and name on credit card. A previous screen calculated the amount to be charged based on the final shopping cart contents. When the data gathered by the payment screen (at the customers browser) is processed, the following decision table determines the action to be taken on the transaction. Note that the expiration, CVV, and name must match the card number. Note also that a negative amount triggers a "bad amount" message.

You are creating a set of tests for this transaction processing. In addition to covering the decision table, you also want to ensure that both positive (amount authorized) and negative (amount not authorized) tests are run for each of the four types of credit cards accepted, American Express, Discover, Master Card, and Visa.

Design a set of tests to achieve this level of coverage, where each test consists of seven conditions and six expected actions. Which of the following gives the number of tests you will need?

A. 8
B. 10
C. 13
D. 14

Q. 183: You are testing a print server whose state-bases responses to various events is shown by the following state transition diagrams

You want to design tests that cover both the state/ event[condition] combinations shown above and along with various state/event =[condition] combinations not shown above. To do so, you create a state transition table based on this diagram that shows all such combinations, one combination per row. HOW many rows does this table contain?

A. 5
B. 7
C. 12
D. 35

Q. 185: Assume you are testing a maintenance release for a browser-based application that allows car dealers to order custom-configured cars from the maker.

# Browsers (four options)
# Operating system versions (five options)
# Connection speeds (two options)
# Security settings (ten options)

At the server side, all dealer requests come to a single, standardized configuration.

Assume that development has provided you with use cases for both normal and exception workflows. You have developed ten test procedures based on these use cases.

You want to test interoperability of the application with the various dealers' site configurations. Which of the following approaches will minimize the amount of work required to do so, while not omitting coverage of any option?

A. Define five configurations covering each option at least once and run two test procedures on each configuration

B. Define ten configurations covering each option at least once and run one test procedure on each configuration

C. Define twenty configurations using classification trees and run each test procedure twice on selected configurations

D. Define fifty configurations using pairwise test techniques and run each test procedure five times on selected configurations

Q. 186: Which of the following is correct about test progress monitoring?

No known important test failures shall exist in the product at the time of delivery; note that a test that identifies one or more bugs can be classified as passed if project management defers all of those bugs.

Consider the excerpt from the test suite summary shown below.
