Question 13
Which of the following comparisons of component testing and system testing are TRUE?

Component testing verifies the functioning of software modules, program objects, and classes that are separately testable, whereas system testing verifies interfaces between components and interactions with different parts of the system.
Test cases for component testing are usually derived from component specifications, design specifications, or data models, whereas test cases for system testing are usually derived from requirement specifications, functional specifications or use cases.
Component testing focuses on functional characteristics, whereas system testing focuses on functional and non-functional characteristics.
Component testing is the responsibility of the technical testers, whereas system testing typically is the responsibility of the users of the system.
