  1. Hi, are you sure that answer to Q.3 is a)? According to ISTQB syllabus:
    security testing: Testing to determine the security of the software product. See also functionality testing.

    It is not directly stated, but seems that according to ISTQB there is a relation between functional testing and security testing.

  2. Hi, are you sure that answer to Q.4 is b)?
    Portability seems to have little in common with disaster. I don't know what would be the correct answer out of the five available - nothing really matches my understanding of portability.

  3. Hi, another problem with Q.6.
    According to ISTQB syllabus:

    software life cycle: The period of time that begins when a software product is conceived and ends when the software is no longer available for use. The software life cycle typically includes:
    concept phase,
    requirements phase,
    design phase,
    implementation phase,
    test phase,
    installation and checkout phase,
    operation and maintenance phase,
    and sometimes, retirement phase.
    Note these phase may overlap or be performed iteratively.

    In my opinion every answer would be correct for this question meaning none of the phases that were given in Q.6 are appropriate.

  6. hi everyone plzz help
    in question 15 and 18 it tells the opposite things about structure testing
    15- structure testing is not stress testing
    18 - stress is the structure testing process

    plz help me to understand concept
