Software Testing Interview Questions Part 4

31. If we have no SRS, BRS but we have test cases does u execute the test cases blindly or do u follow any other process?
A: — Test case would have detail steps of what the application is supposed to do. SO
1) Functionality of application is known.

2) In addition you can refer to Backend, I mean look into the Database. To gain more knowledge of the application

32. How to execute test case?
A: — There are two ways:
1. Manual Runner Tool for manual execution and updating of test status.
2. Automated test case execution by specifying Host name and other automation pertaining details.

33. Difference between re testing and regression testing?

A: — Retesting: –

Re-execution of test cases on same application build with different input values is retesting.

Regression Testing:

Re-execution of test cases on modifies form of build is called regression testing…

34. What is the difference between bug log and defect tracking?
A; — Bug log is a document which maintains the information of the bug where as bug tracking is the process.

35. Who will change the Bug Status as Differed?
A: — Bug will be in open status while developer is working on it Fixed after developer completes his work if it is not fixed properly the tester puts it in reopen After fixing the bug properly it is in closed state.


36. wht is smoke testing and user interface testing ?

A: — ST:
Smoke testing is non-exhaustive software testing, as pertaining that the most crucial functions of a program work, but not bothering with finer details. The term comes to software testing from a similarly basic type of hardware testing.

I did a bit or R n D on this…. some says it’s nothing but Usability testing. Testing to determine the ease with which a user can learn to operate, input, and interpret outputs of a system or component.

Smoke testing is nothing but to check whether basic functionality of the build is stable or not?
I.e. if it possesses 70% of the functionality we say build is stable.
User interface testing: We check all the fields whether they are existing or not as per the format we check spelling graphic font sizes everything in the window present or not|

37. what is bug, deffect, issue, error?

A: — Bug: — Bug is identified by the tester.
Defect:– Whenever the project is received for the analysis phase ,may be some requirement miss to get or understand most of the time Defect itself come with the project (when it comes).
Issue: — Client site error most of the time.
Error: — When anything is happened wrong in the project from the development side i.e. called as the error, most of the time this knows by the developer.

Bug: a fault or defect in a system or machine

Defect: an imperfection in a device or machine;

Issue: An issue is a major problem that will impede the progress of the project and cannot be resolved by the project manager and project team without outside help

Error is the deviation of a measurement, observation, or calculation from the truth

38. What is the diff b/w functional testing and integration testing?
A: — functional testing is testing the whole functionality of the system or the application whether it is meeting the functional specifications

Integration testing means testing the functionality of integrated module when two individual modules are integrated for this we use top-down approach and bottom up approach

39. what type of testing u perform in organization while u do System Testing, give clearly?

A: — Functional testing
User interface testing
Usability testing
Compatibility testing
Model based testing
Error exit testing
User help testing
Security testing
Capacity testing
Performance testing
Sanity testing
Regression testing
Reliability testing
Recovery testing
Installation testing
Maintenance testing
Accessibility testing, including compliance with:
Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
Section 508 Amendment to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web
Consortium (W3C)

40. What is the main use of preparing Traceability matrix and explain the real time usage?

A: — A traceability matrix is created by associating requirements with the work products that satisfy them. Tests are associated with the requirements on which they are based and the product tested to meet the requirement.

A traceability matrix is a report from the requirements database or repository.

41. How can u do the following 1) Usability testing 2) scalability Testing

Testing the ease with which users can learn and use a product.

It’s a Web Testing defn.allows web site capability improvement.

Testing to determine whether the system/software meets the specified portability requirements.

42. What does u mean by Positive and Negative testing & what is the diff’s between them. Can anyone explain with an example?

A: — Positive Testing: Testing the application functionality with valid inputs and verifying that output is correct
Negative testing: Testing the application functionality with invalid inputs and verifying the output.

Difference is nothing but how the application behaves when we enter some invalid inputs suppose if it accepts invalid input the application
Functionality is wrong

Positive test: testing aimed to show that s/w work i.e. with valid inputs. This is also called as “test to pass’
Negative testing: testing aimed at showing s/w doesn’t work. Which is also know as ‘test to fail” BVA is the best example of -ve testing.

43. what is change request, how u use it?

A: — Change Request is a attribute or part of Defect Life Cycle.

Now when u as a tester finds a defect n report to ur DL…he in turn informs the Development Team.
The DT says it’s not a defect it’s an extra implementation or says not part of req’ment. Its newscast has to pay.

Here the status in ur defect report would be Change Request

I think change request controlled by change request control board (CCB). If any changes required by client after we start the project, it has to come thru that CCB and they have to approve it. CCB got full rights to accept or reject based on the project schedule and cost.

44. What is risk analysis, what type of risk analysis u did in u r project?

A: — Risk Analysis:
A systematic use of available information to determine how often specified events and unspecified events may occur and the magnitude of their likely consequences


procedure to identify threats & vulnerabilities, analyze them to ascertain the exposures, and highlight how the impact can be eliminated or reduced

Types :


45. What is API ?

A:– Application program interface
