Re-testing is testing the failed test cases and the bugs that have been fixed in current build. Regression testing is done to make sure the "bug fixes" do not affect the surrounding code (features). So the test case selection really focuses on which feature were affected by bugs. Lets take an example: Suppose you are testing a banking application (everyone does online banking these days) and you found a bug in checking account feature. Say the bug is about amount not automatically adjusted after money is credited by State Bank (specifically) to checking account. When this bug is fixed, you need to run test cases pertaining to different type of checking account credits etc need to be run again even thought they have passed.

High priority level test cases can be used for regression testing which covers the whole business functionality.

All the failed and passed test cases should be runned for Regression testing if there are no new features added to the lastly tested build

Code can break mainly for 2 reasons

1. Bug fix happen for the tested build (Run passed and Failed test cases only)

2. New features added to the existing build(run passed,failed and new test cases added for the newly added features
