1 Application = two Moth Duration (development +Testing) - Means 1 months = 50% and 2 month = 50%.

During this development, in first month organization completed 30% work instead of 50 % hence in next month, they should cover 30% or more than that, not less than 30%

Basically it’s a constant Pace

Developed software - how much the functionality is covered that should be test, which functionality is working and which functionality is not working
