It mainly depends on the industry the application is targeted at. The industry will tell you the application type. You will never find a tailor-made test strategy for each type of application. If this were an interview question, I would ask the interview if he can tell me what type of application it is and which industry it applies to.

For example, the interviewer told you it an online banking application, your test strategy will include all these testing levels:
1. Component
2. Integration
3. System
4. Acceptance

Your testing approach will include but not limited to:
- Functional
- UI
- Database testing
- Interface testing
- Security testing
- Cookie testing
- Performance
- Load
etc.

You will include testing approach in your test strategy.
