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 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 1 is defnitely correctAnswer 2 is definitely wrong - regression does not test new functionalityAnswer 3 is correctAnswer 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
