Topic 1, "Test Techniques various"
An embedded software company is considering to improve the quality of its software
components to be delivered to the integration team. After studying various experience papers
that report a higher level of quality for software components, two main alternative techniques

A. Both are performed using requirements as its major input document
B. Both are usually undertaken by integration testers
C. Both are usually undertaken by development during coding and unit testing
D. Both are related to reviews
E. Both usually use a tool
Answer(s): C, E
Which of the following is a dynamic analysis technique related to improving application
A. Code complexity analysis
C. Network package sniffing
D. Spel ing and grammar checking
Definition-use pairs are identified during which of the following static analysis activities?
A. Control flow analysis
B. Data flow activities
C. Coding standards analysis
D. Cyclomatic complexity analysis
If we say that a set of tests has achieved 100% structural decision coverage on a particular
module in a program, what does that mean?
A. That all bugs present in that module were necessarily revealed by those tests.
B. That every control flow branch had been executed at least once by those tests.
C. That every dataflow in that module was exercised at least once by those tests.
