C. A test environment comprised of stubs and drives needed to conduct a test

D. A set of several test cases for a component or system under test

10. You are a tester for testing a large system. The system data model is very large with many attributes and there are a lot of interdependencies within the fields. What steps would you use to test the system and also what are the efforts of the test you have taken on the test plan
