comment Which approach should be used for late tests in large projects?
What is the level of risk here if it's insufficiently tested and hence buggy? (You'll get a different answer if it's an internal application that will quickly go through several versions, versus it's a SaaS application that is the lifeblood of all of your safety-critical customers)

comment Which approach should be used for late tests in large projects?
So it's "late". How much time is available for testing? How many people can participate? (You'll get a different answer if you say "this must ship tomorrow and I'm the only tester" versus "It ships in mid-2016 and we can hire up to 10 professional testers")

Good answer. I would write it as "The fixes for Defect XXX have been verified."

comment Best guidelines to create images for bug reports in big testing team?
" Devs and PMs could go crazy from different ways five testers create screenshots and highlight them." I guess I haven't ever seen this become a real problem. As long as the images can easily be viewed and understood, I would avoid such "standards" as unnecessary. You do have a real bug tracking system, right? You aren't relying solely on pictures?

comment How to downgrade browser versions other than Internet Explorer?
"I am looking for a way to downgrade Chrome/Mozilla/Opera." There is no real "downgrade" process, other than uninstalling, then installing the desired (older) version.

comment Test a Form with no client side validation
I don't think I understand your question. If you observe that it just reads "Error", then I assume you are already testing it, right? How do you test other form fields with a Submit button?

comment how to know which tool is appropriate for automating website?
@sameerjoshi - Do you have some other way (perhaps an additional tool) to cover the other 20% of the "must haves"? If not, then you need another tool. "Must have" means you cannot do without it.

comment Positive and negative test cases for login page
Did you ask the interviewer what "best" meant in this context? Without that, this question cannot be answered.

comment How to specify mobile devices web-app to be tested for in the Requirements?
Yes. My company built a web application that responded with a different UI when it detected that it was being viewed on a mobile device. But the detection only cared about desktop-vs-mobile. It never cared about which mobile device was being used.

comment How to specify mobile devices web-app to be tested for in the Requirements?
Is your web-application sensitive to the specific device being used? If so, you may need to list them all specifically. If not, there is no need to do so.

comment For successful build how many test cycles are required
What about the number of testers on the project? Wouldn't that be an important factor?
