Answer / subbu
Sanity testing is done whenever the new build release. we
have to test for the major functionality of the application
which could stop our testing part continuation.
If it fails, then we should not continue with our testing
part. For the eg of telephone, If we check the
functionality like while lifting the receiver, it should
give the dial tone. if it fails, then its waste of time to
continue with the testing phase.
Also called as smoke testing.

documented properly or not? i.e. if the user is stuck any
