What does ‘validating requirements’ mean?

  1. Performing User Acceptance Testing
  2. Making sure the code compiles to your production environment
  3. Reviewing requirements to ensure completeness and correctness
  4. Reading requirements you have documented to see if you missed anything

Correct Answer: C

The definition of “Requirements Validation” from the IIBA BABOK is “Work done to evaluate requirements to ensure they support the delivery of the expected benefits and are within the solution scope.”

User Acceptance Testing and reading requirements may be involved in validating requirements, but they describe part of an approach to validation, not the entire concept. Compiling code has nothing to do with requirements validation.
