Answers to Sample Test 2

  1. c, d, f
  2. c. The main method must be static and return void. Hence a and b are incorrect. It must take an array of String as argument. Hence e and f are incorrect. As Java is case sensitive, d is incorrect.
  3. a, d
  4. List
  5. e. The collection interface Map has two implementation HashMap and Hashtable.
  6. a. Local variables are not initialized by default. They must be initialized before they are used.
  7. d. The variable i gets initialized to zero. The while loop does not get executed.
  8. c. During various iterations of three loops, the only time i, j and k have same values are when all of them are set to 2.
  9. 0x17 or 0X17.
  10. e. The statement "i=2" evaluates to 2. The expression within the if block must evaluate to a boolean.
  11. e. The range of short primitive type is -32768 to 32767.
  12. c,d. Java does not allow casts between boolean values and any numeric types. Hence a is incorrect. Assigning double to a float requires an explicit cast. Hence b and e are incorrect.
  13. a
  14. e
  15. b. Both Strings test and test2 contain "abcd" . They are however located at different memory addresses. Hence test == test2 returns false, and test.equals(test2) returns true.
  16. d. The for loop does not get executed even once as the condition (i < 0) fails in the first iteration. In the switch statement, the statement j = j +1; gets executed, setting j to 1. As there is no break after this case, the next statement also gets executed setting j to 3.
  17. 5050. The recursive function xyz essentially sums up numbers 1 to num. This evaluates to (num * (num + 1))/2.
  18. a. Java supports assignment of one array to another. Hence b is incorrect. Array elements are indexed from 0. Hence c is incorrect. A method that accesses array elements out of its range does not generate a compilation error. Hence d is incorrect.
  19. d. array.length gives the number of elements in the array. As indexes in Java start from 0, d is the correct answer.
  20. c. In the invocation of call_array, the first element is invoked using call-by-value, and the second using call-by-reference.
  21. d. import statement, package statement and class definitions are all optional in a file. Hence a and c are incorrect. If both import and package statements are present in a file, then package statement must appear before the import statement. Hence b is incorrect.
  22. e. The args array consists of two elements "it" and "out". args.length is set to two.
  23. a,c,d. The exception ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException is generated as the main method tries to access i[2]. Hence 1 gets printed. After this finally block gets excuted, before the program exits.
  24. d,e,f
  25. e. A data member that does not have public/protected/private is accessible to all methods in the same package.
  26. a. The Manager and Employee share as "is a" relationship - A Manager is an Employee. This is captured by making Employee the base class of Manager.
  27. b. The method int parseInt(Sting s) returns the integer value corresponding to input String, assuming that the input string represents an integer in base 10.
  28. b. The start() method invokes the run() method when the thread is ready to execute.
  29. d
