2. What is boundary value testing?
i.The kind of testing in which test data or test cases are selected by

identified the boundaries that separate valid and invalid conditions. Tests are conducted to test the inside and outside of these boundaries, in addition to these boundary points. Experience suggest that these test have higher payoff than selecting the random values for testing.

3. What is decision/branch coverage strategy?

i. Branch Coverage Testing seeks to ensure that every branch has been executed. Branch Coverage can be tested by probes inserted at points in the program that represent arcs from branch points in the flow graphs.

Test script: Commonly used to refer to the automated test procedure used with a test
Test specification: For each test case, the coverage item, the initial state of the software
under test, the input, and the predicted outcome.
Volume testing: Testing where the system is subjected to large volumes of data.
