10 Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions

I have got many request for the manual testing interview questions. So, here are some of the interview questions which you would like to know about.

Q1. What is a test plan?

A: A software project test plan is a document that describes the objectives, scope, approach and focus of a software testing effort. The process of preparing a test plan is a useful way to think through the efforts needed to validate the acceptability of a software product. The completed document will help people outside the test group understand the why and how of product validation. It should be thorough enough to be useful, but not so thorough that none outside the test group will be able to read it.

Q2. What is configuration management?

A: Configuration management (CM) covers the tools and processes used to control, coordinate and track code, requirements, documentation, problems, change requests, designs, tools, compilers, libraries, patches, changes made to them and who makes the changes. Rob Davis has had experience with a full range of CM tools and concepts. Rob Davis can easily adapt to your software tool and process needs.

Q3. What if the software is so buggy it can't be tested at all?

A: In this situation the best bet is to have test engineers go through the process of reporting whatever bugs or problems initially show up, with the focus being on critical bugs. Since this type of problem can severely affect schedules and indicates deeper problems in the software development process, such as insufficient unit testing, insufficient integration testing, poor design, improper build or release procedures, managers should be notified and provided with some documentation as evidence of the problem.

Q4. How do you know when to stop testing?

A: This can be difficult to determine. Many modern software applications are so complex and run in such an interdependent environment, that complete testing can never be done. Common factors in deciding when to stop are...
  • Deadlines, e.g. release deadlines, testing deadlines;
  • Test cases completed with certain percentage passed;
  • Test budget has been depleted;
  • Coverage of code, functionality, or requirements reaches a specified point;
  • Bug rate falls below a certain level; or
  • Beta or alpha testing period ends.

Most Frequently Asked Testing Types

In this post, we are trying to cover the most frequently asked testing terms in most of the interviews. 
Q1. What is Testing:

It is process of verifying are we developing the right product or not and also    validating the developed product is right or not
     Software Testing = Verification + Validation

Q2. What is Verification?

It is a process of verifying: Are we developing the right product or not. Known as static testing.

Q3.What is Validation?

It is a process of validating: Does the developed product is right or not. Also called as dynamic testing.

Q4. What is black box testing?

Black box testing is functional testing, not based on any knowledge of internal software design or code. Black box testing are based on requirements and functionality.

Q5. What is white box testing?

White box testing is based on knowledge of the internal logic of an application's code. Tests are based on coverage of code statements, branches, paths and conditions.

Q6. What is unit testing?

Unit testing is the first level of dynamic testing and is first the responsibility of developers and then that of the test engineers. Unit testing is performed after the expected test results are met or differences are explainable/acceptable.

Running Selenium Code on Multiple Browsers

Below is the code which might be helpful to you. This code will allow you to launch your URL in Google Chrome, Internet Explorer as well as in Firefox:

public class browsers {
public static WebDriver driver = null;
public static void openbrowser (String browser)
if (browser.equalsIgnoreCase("Firefox"))
driver = new FirefoxDriver();
