Answer 18

Every instance of a class has its own set of instance variables. You can only access instance variables and instance methods through an object of the class. In this case, forty bytes of memory would be required to containthe instance variables of the ten objects.

Back to Question 18

Answer 17

Only one, because out is a class variable of the System class.

Back to Question 17

Answer 16

The runtime system allocates a class variable only once no matter how many instances of the class are instantiated. Thus, all objects of the classshare the same physical memory space for the class variable, and in this case, only four bytes of memory will be allocated to contain the allocated variables.

Back to Question 16

Answer 15

The statement in Answer 14 calls the println method belonging to an object of the PrintStream class, which is referenced (pointed to) by the out variable, which is a class variable of the System class.

Back to Question 15

Answer 14

System.out.println("Dick Baldwin");

Back to Question 14

Answer 13

The println method can be accessed by joining the name of a variable that references a PrintStream object to the name of the println method using a period.

Back to Question 13

Answer 12

The println method causes its argument to be displayed on the standard output device. (The standard output device is the screen by default, but can be redirected by the user at the operating system level.)

Back to Question 12

Answer 11

The println method is an instance method of the PrintStream class.

Back to Question 11

Answer 10

The out variable in the System class refers to an instance of the PrintStream class (a PrintStream object), which is automatically instantiated when the System class is loaded into the application.

Answer 9


Back to Question 9

Answer 8

The code fragment accesses the contents of the class variable named out in the class named System .

Back to Question 8

Answer 7

False. the variable named out defined in the System class is a reference variable that points to an object of another type.

Back to Question 7

Answer 6

False. A class variable can be a primitive type, or it can be a reference variable that points to another object.

Back to Question 6

Answer 5


Back to Question 5

Answer 4

False. The System class has several class variables (including out and in ) that are useful without the requirement to instantiate an object of the System class.

Back to Question 4

Answer 3

False. While it is probably true that the main method must instantiate objects of other classes in order to accomplish much that is of value, this isnot a requirement. The main method in the "Hello World" program of this module does not instantiate objects of any class at all.

Back to Question 3

Answer 2

False. The main method can access the variables and methods of objects instantiated from other classes. Otherwise, the flow of the program would bestuck within the main method itself and wouldn't be very useful.

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
