1. Exercise 1 Each of the following six figures (Figures A.1A.3) corresponds to three test cases (indicated by the bold arrows), testing the three possible evening activities. In combination, we obtain 18 test cases.

    Figure A.1 Solution of Exercise 1 (test cases 1–6).


    Figure A.2 Solution of Exercise 1 (test cases 7–12).


    Figure A.3 Solution of Exercise 1 (test cases 13–18).

  2. Exercise 2 The model described a test of the Microsoft Windows calculator. The test focuses on the basics operators plus (+), minus (−), times (*), divide (/), and equals (=). Trigonometric and logarithmic functions are beyond scope.
