  1. I think Q28 should be a) as Juran mostly worked on quality control and has written most of his books about that subject.

  2. Also Q29 should be d) I think as testing is not always possible after writing requirements. And on many other tests d) is put as right answer.

    1. Hello Amit,

      The questions for the foundation level are not tough.
      It all depends on your understanding about the concepts explained in the ISTQB Foundation level book.
      Once you clearly understand the concept everything will be easy.
      So focus on the basic concepts and its aspects.
      In exams you will get questions like this, just read the question and analyze it will and you will get the answers.
      Syllabus is has not changed.

      Sincerely,

    1. Hi Saad, i got the same problem. My exam is on 28.01, questions from 26-33papers are very strage, a lot of terms are not included in glossary for foundation level. I hope there're some random questions from other levels too.

  18. I think that answer to Q.23 is B not A as the purpose of testing is to find defects.

  19. Q.35 - the first 2 answer options are the same:

    35.Percentage Rework is calculated by
    a. (Review effort + Rework effort)/Actual Effort expended
