Regression testing is any type of software testing which seeks to uncover regression bugs. 
Regression bugs occur whenever software functionality that previously worked as desired, stops working or no longer works in the same way that was previously planned.

So the according to me

Statement3 and Statement4 are correct.

Testing with the intent of determining if bug fixes have been successful and have not created any new problems. Also, this type of testing is done to ensure that no degradation of baseline functionality has occurred.

  So,  the answer will be 2,3 and 4

Regression testing is the process of validating modified parts of the software and ensuring that no new errors are introduced into previously tested code.  II) is the best answer.

regression test is done on regression bugs..esp when there is a known code change. its a repeated test hence automation is most suitable for this. this is most usefull when done on major functionalities

Answer: iii) Options 3 and 4 are correct.

1- Though they are baselined, the tests can be changed.
2- Regression tests are done on the unchanged functionalities, after a new functionality is added or a functionality is changed.
5- Regresesion testing detects defects and DOES not prevent them.

Answer 1 is defnitely correct
Answer 2 is definitely wrong - regression does not test new functionality
Answer 3 is correct
Answer 4 is wrong - targeting regression misses the point. Regression is intended to find defects in areas that you did not expect them.
Answer 5 is wrong - testing never prevented a defect - it can only find them.

Correct answer is 1 & 3
