    - The above statement is false.

    - Error is a human mistake that causes fault.

    - Defect is a formal name of bug. Defects may occur due to errors (mistakes in code or document) that cause deviation from actual result.

    - Failures are caused by environment or sometimes due to mishandling of the product.
