_______ is a form of testing that involves linking all of the individual components together and testing them as a group to uncover any defects between individual components.

  1. a. Unit testing
  2. b. System testing
  3. c. Integration testing
  4. d. Volume testing

Program Description Answer

Integration testing” is one of the forms of testing that links all individual components together and tests them as a group to identify the presence of defects between individual components.

Hence, the correct option is “C”.

Explanation of Solution

Integration testing:

  • Integration testing ensures that module or program work together in a set.
  • The integration testing scope is wider than the unit testing but not more than the system testing.
  • Its primary goals are
    • The errors caught by the integration testing are highest among all the testing technique.
    • This testing ensures that the link and the interfaces between the programs work properly.
    • The procedure for the integration testing is same as that of unit testing; here also, tests are developed and then according to the tests cases are developed.
  • Integration testing is performed by the analysts and programmers.
  • It includes four different approaches namely, user interface testing, user scenario testing, data flow testing and system interface testing.

Explanation for incorrect options:

Unit testing:

  • Unit test is one of the stages defined for the tests. It is used to test the single module for some sort of specific test.
  • It is performed once the programmer develops the program, tests the code, and believes that there is no error in that code...
