What is Mutation Testing?

Answer Posted / nitin verma

In the Mutation testing we create a copy of the original
program that is called as mutant,and we do some changes in
the mutant program and run it with the test cases.After
going through the test cases if the change is being detect
by the test sace then it is called as a 'Killed Mutant' and
if the change did not detect by the test cases then it is
called as 'Equivalent Mutant'. This process is expensive.

Plz correct me if i m wrong....
Thnks n Regards..
