Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    As a test analyst you're collecting measures about defects.After the first test cycle (covering all requirements) you notice that:* Subsystem A has a defect density that is 60% lower than the average* Subsystem B has a defect density that is 150% higher than the average What conclusions for the next test cycle could you draw from this observation?
    • A. 

      It is probable that subsystem B has still more hidden defects. Therefore we need to test subsystem B in more detail.

    • B. 

      Because we have already found many defects in subsystem B, we should concentrate testing resources on Subsystem A.

    • C. 

      Observed defect density does not allow any conclusions about the amount of additional testing.

    • D. 

      We should try to equalise the amount of testing over all modules to ensure that we test all subsystems evenly.
