ISTQB Foundation Exam Preparation-K Level wise-Q 31 to 40

ISTQB Foundation Exam Preparation–K Level wise: Q. 31 to 40
The following questions prepared according to different K-Levels are of great help in reviewing your skills before appearing in ISTQB Foundation Level exam as per the Latest Syllabus updated in 2010.
Set of 10 Questions (Q. 31 to 40) with Explanation in Favor of the Correct Answer
The Correct Answer has been Hi-lighted in Bold.
K1- Q. 31: A test management tool is most likely to integrate with which of the following tools?
A. Performance testing tool
B. Test data preparation tool
C. Static analysis tool
D. Requirements management tool
Explanation in favor of the correct answer
Requirements management tools (option (D)) often have interfaces with test management tools. In some cases they will be sold as a package or in other cases a test management tool may have its own requirements module. The use of such interfaces or integrated packages aids traceability from requirements through to test scripts and defects.
Performance management tools (option (A)), test data preparation tools (option (B)) and static analysis tools (option (C)) are unlikely to have an interface or be integrated with a test management tool. They serve different purposes and therefore there is little need for such interfaces.

K2- Q. 33: Which pair of definitions is correct?
A. Regression testing is checking that the reported defect has been fixed; retesting is testing that there are no additional problems in previously tested software.
B. Regression testing is checking there are no additional problems in previously tested software; retesting enables developers to isolate the problem.
C. Regression testing involves running all tests that have been run before; retesting runs new tests.
D. Regression testing is checking that there are no additional problems in previously tested software, retesting is demonstrating that the reported defect has been fixed.
Explanation in favor of the correct answer
Regression testing is testing that nothing has regressed. Retesting (or confirmation testing) confirms the fix is correct by running the same test after the fix has been made. No other option has both of these as true.

iii. Designing the test environment set-up.
iv. Developing and prioritizing test cases.
v. Verifying the environment is set up correctly.
Which statement below is TRUE?
A. (i) and (ii) are part of analysis and design, (iii), (iv) and (v) are part of test implementation and execution.
B. (i) and (iii) are part of analysis and design, (ii), (iv) and (v) are part of test implementation and execution.
C. (i) and (v) are part of analysis and design, (ii), (iii) and (iv) are part of test implementation and execution.
D. (i) and (iv) are part of analysis and design, (ii), (iii) and (v) are part of test implementation and execution.
Explanation in favor of the correct answer
All other answers contain an activity identified as analysis and design that is part of implementation and test execution.

K2- Q. 35: Which statement correctly describes the public and profession aspects of the code of ethics?
A. Public: Certified software testers shall act in the best interests of their client and employer (being consistent with the wider public interest). Profession: Certified software testers shall advance the integrity and reputation of their industry consistent with the public interest.
B. Public: Certified software testers shall advance the integrity and reputation of the profession consistent with the public interest. Profession: Certified software testers shall consider the wider public interest in their actions.
C. Public: Certified software testers shall consider the wider public interest in their actions. Profession: Certified software testers shall participate in lifelong learning regarding the practice of their profession and shall promote an ethical approach to the practice of their profession.
D. Public: Certified software testers shall consider the wider public interest in their actions. Profession: Certified software testers shall advance the integrity and reputation of their industry consistent with the public interest.
Explanation in favor of the correct answer
All the answers reflect the definition of two of the items from the code of ethics, and care must be taken in searching for the Public item because ‘public’ or ‘public interest’ are used in several of the eight items in the code. The key is that ‘public’ is the main item, rather than a subsidiary. In the order given in the options, A. reflects Client and employer and Profession while B. gives Profession and Public (the correct choices, but the wrong way round). Option C. gives Public and Self, leaving the last option D. to give Public and Profession.

Options (C) and (D) require the system to have been delivered; at these points the development strategy followed is not important to the tester. Option (B) needs knowledge of the development strategy in order to determine the order in which components will be integrated and tested.
