ANSWER

Fault-injection tests involve the deliberate introduction of faults to test system robustness and error-handling capabilities. Faults can be introduced directly into the code (compile-time injection) or through the use of software triggers that cause specific scenarios to occur in a running system (runtime injection). It ensures that the system is able to handle and recover from fault or error conditions, and identifies design weaknesses where a single fault could potentially be propagated into a severe error or systemic failure.

Do your homework prior to the business analysis interview!

Having an idea of the type of questions you might be asked during a business analyst interview will not only give you confidence but it will also help you to formulate your thoughts and to be better prepared to answer the interview questions you might get during the interview for a business analyst position.  Of course, just memorizing a list of business analyst interview questions will not make you a great business analyst but it might just help you get that next job.
