# 1
All-pairs testing or pairwise testing is a combinatorial
testing method that, for each pair of input parameters to a
system tests all possible discrete combinations of those

Pairwise (a.k.a. all-pairs) testing is an effective test
case generation technique that is based on the observation
that most faults are caused by interactions of at most two
factors. Pairwise-generated test suites cover all
combinations of two therefore are much smaller than
exhaustive ones yet still very effective in finding defects.

There are also some automated tools to generate pairwise
combinations like

Arif and Bhagawati are correct.

Pairwise testing is the simplest form of combinatorial testing. Another way to state what Arif and Bhagawati have correctly stated is that a primary goal of pair-wise testing is to achieve 100% coverage of potential dual-mode-faults.

More sophisticated combinatorial testing methods can also guarantee 100% coverage of all potential triple-mode-faults, 100% coverage of all potential quadruple-mode-faults, etc.

if we choose any two column in the array and all the
combinations of numbers will appear in those column.
this applied in software testing which helps us to eliminate
duplicate cases.

pair wise tsing is an effective test care genertion
technique that is based on the observation that most
faults are caused by interaction of atmost two
factors. pairwise testsuite cover all combinations of two
therefore are much smaller than exhaustive ones yet still
very effective in finding defects.

paurwise testing is a adhoc / monkey testing techniques used
in case of lack of time, lack of documentation, lack of
skills, lack of resources etc.
the lest lead will use this tech due to lack of time . they
will make a tester as a pair with developer. they both cont
testing nd coding parallel.
Is This Answer Correct ?    7 Yes 6 No
# 6
testing a single programe by one pair is nothing but
pairwise testing(Eg for pair:two testers,1developer and 1
tester,or end user and tester).
Is This Answer Correct ?    0 Yes 13 No
# 7
Due to lack of knowledge senior testing engineers are
grouped with junior testing engineers to share their
Is This Answer Correct ?    0 Yes 23 No
# 8
TO conduct the testing senior tester with the help of
junior tester is called pairwise testing.This much of
testing is conducting when the time is less for testing
Is This Answer Correct ?    2 Yes 29 No
# 9
pair testing is one type of ad-hoctesting due to lack of
domain knowledge junior testers are paired up with the
senior testers ,called pair testing .
Is This Answer Correct ?    0 Yes 29 No
# 10
In pairwise testing, two testers combinly working on the
same system for the same project.
The main aim of pairwise testing is, to exchange of ideas
between the testers.
The sucess of pairwise testing depends on coordination
between the testers.
Is This Answer Correct ?    3 Yes 41 No

For all the three failed testcases a bug is logged refrencing to the three failed testcase. In Next round of validation out of three two TC#2 and 3 got PASSED and TC#1 FAILED. I am confusssed if in this scenario if i mark the PASSED test case as PASS OR FAIl, as the the Defect will have BOTH PASS and FAIl at the same time. Please clarify How to handel this scenario. TCS 2
