A burn down chart shows how much work is remaining to be done in the project, whereas a burn up shows how much work has been completed, and the total amount of work.

Velocity = Sum of complexity points  of any Sprint user stories.

Example.
 Sprint 1= 10 user stories
each user story complexity point is 10
 Then the sprint 1 velocity is= 10+10+10+10+10+10+10+10+10+10= 100.

What is a Business Value ?
Business value is an informal term that includes all forms of value that determine the health and well-being of the firm in the long run. Although this definition makes the sensible point that something has business value when it positively impacts the longevity of an organization, it is still quite vague and broad.

Velocity in Agile is a simple calculation measuring units of work completed in a given timeframe. Units of work can be measured in several ways, including engineer hours, user stories, or story points.

For example, to track Agile velocity, most Scrum teams measure the number of user points in a given sprint. Once this is measured based on a few sprints, the team can then predict how many user points they should plan to complete per sprint. This ultimately reveals how many sprints it will take to complete a project, and helps the team to measure efficiency along the way.

This type of sprint-based agile scrum interview questions is very common in an agile or scrum master interview.
2. What is Velocity?
Answer: Velocity question is generally posed to understand if you have done some real work and familiar with the term. Its definition ?Velocity is the rate at which team progresses print by sprint? should be enough. You can also add saying the important feature of velocity that it can?t be compared to two different scrum teams.
3. What do you know about impediments in Scrum? Give some examples of impediments.
Answer: Impediments are the obstacles or issues faced by scrum team which slow down their speed of work. If something is trying to block the scrum team from their getting work ?Done? then it is an impediment. Impediments can come in any form. Some of the impediments are given as ?

While answering impediments related agile scrum interview questions remember that you may be asked the way to remove any of the mentioned impediment.
4. What is the difference and similarity between Agile and Scrum?
Answer: Difference between Agile and Scrum ? Agile is a broad spectrum, it is a methodology used for project management while Scrum is just a form of the Agile that describes the process and its steps more concisely. Agile is a practice whereas scrum is a procedure to pursue this practice.
The similarity between Agile and Scrum ? The Agile involves completing projects in steps or incrementally. The Agile methodology is considered to be iterative in nature. Being a form of Agile, Scrum is same as that of the Agile. It is also incremental and iterative.
5. What is the increment? Explain.
Answer: This is one of the commonly asked agile scrum interview questions and a quick answer can be given this way. An increment is the total of all the product backlogs items completed during a sprint. Each increment includes all the previous sprint increment values as it is cumulative. It must be in the available mode in the subsequent release as it is a step to reach your goal
