What is pairwise testing?..

Answer / bhagawati

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 TestersDesk.com.

What is pairwise testing?..

Answer / the good dr.

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.
