I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By  
# 1
Answer: B

Compliance testing involves determining whether controls
exist as designed whereas substantive testing relates to
detailed testing of transactions/procedures. Compliance
testing does not involve testing of plans. Regulatory
requirements are not by themselves tested directly in
compliance testing, but controls in place to ensure
regulatory compliance are checked.

Compliance testing checks whether controls exist to satisfy
the control objectives.
While Substantive testing checks the effectivenesss of
these controls by testing integrity of individual
transactions and information
Is This Answer Correct ?    4 Yes 2 No

Compliance test is used to check the presence of a process
or control to address a specific risk ( authorization
required for allowing access to the building ) while
Substantive test will give an idea as to how far the
process has been adhered from a sample of transactions from
that process ( how many were provided access without the
required authorization )
Is This Answer Correct ?    2 Yes 1 No
