Software testing is an important technique for improving the reliability and quality of software systems. Object-oriented programming is considered to be the most promising programming methodology. We propose two approaches to generate non-equivalent ground terms as test cases. These approaches are based on the technique of fundamental equivalent pair. The basic idea of these approaches is as follows. Suppose u1~u2 is a fundamental equivalent pair, u 2* is the normal form of u2. Suppose further that by changing the values of parameters of constructor contained in u2 *, or by inserting a basic constructor into u2*, we obtain another ground term u2', then u1 and u2' are nonequivalent, and can be used as a test case
