Preface

This module is one in a collection of modules on Java Collections designed for teaching ITSE2321 - Object-Oriented Programming (Java) at Austin Community College in Austin, TX.

This module contains review questions and answers keyed to the module titled Java4110: The Comparator Interface, Part 3 .

Once you study that module, you should be able to answer the review questions in this module.

The questions and the answers in this module are connected by hyperlinks to make it easy for you to navigate from the question to the answer and back again.

Questions

Question 1 .

What output is produced by the program shown in Listing 1 ?

  • Compiler Error
  • Runtime Error
  • BILL Bill JOE Joe TOM Tom
  • Tom TOM Joe JOE Bill BILL
  • Joe Bill Tom
  • None of the above.

Answer 1

Question 2

True or False? The fillIt method in Listing 1 populates the TreeSet object referred by the incoming parameter with the following names in the following order:

Joe Bill Tom JOE BILL TOM

Answer 2

Question 3

True or False? When the fillIt method in Listing 1 returns, the TreeSet object is populated with six names in descending order taking case into account.

Answer 3

Question 4

True or False? In the output from Listing 1 , descending order means that names beginning with letters that are low in the alphabet occur before names beginning with letters that arehigher in the alphabet. In addition, names containing lower case characters appear before the same names containing only upper case characters.

Answer 4

Question 5

True or False? In Listing 1 , names with the same spelling but different case were considered to be duplicates and therefore wereexcluded from the collection

Answer 5

Question 6

True or False? Given: Listing 1 contains the following statement:

return result*(-1);

If you were to change the value in parentheses from -1 to -2, the program output would be:

BILL Bill JOE Joe TOM Tom

Answer 6

Listings

What is the meaning of the following two images?

These images were inserted here simply to insert some space between the questions and the answers to keep them from being visible on the screen at thesame time.

Spacer image of a rabbit and a penguin.

This image was also inserted for the purpose of inserting space between the questions and the answers.

Spacer image of a penguin and some houses.

Answers

Answer 6

False. If you were to change the value in parentheses from -1 to -2, the program output would still be:

Tom TOM Joe JOE Bill BILL

It is the sign of the result and not the value of the result that determines the sorting order of the output in Listing 1 . You would need to multiply by a positive value to cause the output to be

BILL Bill JOE Joe TOM Tom

Back to Question 6

Answer 5

False. In Listing 1 , names with the same spelling but different case were not considered to be duplicates insofar as the contractfor the set was concerned.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
