extern int i;

A.Compiler error          B.20             C.21 D.Linker error

Answer: D

Linker error: undefined symbol '_i'. Explanation: extern storage class in the following declaration, extern int i; specifies to the compiler that the memory for i is allocated in some other program and that address will be given to the current program at the time of linking. But linker finds that no other variable of name i is available in any other program with memory space allocated for it. Hence a link error has occurred.

A.Disjoint with total specialization        B.Disjoint with partial specialization C.Overlap with total specialization D.Overlap with partial specialization

Answer: A

10. You want subclasses in any package to have access to members of a superclass. Which is the most restrictive access that accomplishes this objective ?

A.public            B.private             C.protected               D.transient


Access modifiers dictate which classes, not which instances, may access features. Methods and variables are collectively known as members. Method and variable members are given access control in exactly the same way. private makes a member accessible only from within its own class protected makes a member accessible only to classes in the same package or subclass of the class default access is very similar to protected (make sure you spot the difference) default access makes a member accessible only to classes in the same package. public means that all other classes regardless of the package that they belong to, can access the member (assuming the class itself is visible) final makes it impossible to extend a class, when applied to a method it prevents a method from being overridden in a subclass, when applied to a variable it makes it impossible to reinitialise a variable once it has been initialised abstract declares a method that has not been implemented. transient indicates that a variable is not part of the persistent state of an object. volatile indicates that a thread must reconcile its working copy of the field with the master copy every time it accesses the variable. After examining the above it should be obvious that the access modifier that provides the most restrictions for methods to be accessed from the subclasses of the class from another package is C - protected. A is also a contender but C is more restrictive, B would be  the answer if the constraint was the "same package" instead of "any package" in other words the subclasses clause in the question eliminates default.

11. If 20% of a = b, then b% of 20 is the same as:

A.4% of a          B.5% of a          C.20% of a D.None of these

Answer: A

20*a/100=b and b/100*20=? on multiplying 20/100 on eq 1 then it becomes 20*20*a/10000=b*20/100 4*a/100=b*20/100 4% of a=b% of 20

12. Out of 7 consonants and 4 vowels, how many words of 3 consonants and 2 vowels can be formed?

A.210 B.1050 C.25200                 D.21400

Answer: C

Number of ways of selecting (3 consonants out of 7) and (2 vowels out of 4) = (7C3 x 4C2) = ( 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 ) 3 x 2 x 1 2 x 1 = 210. Number of groups, each having 3 consonants and 2 vowels = 210. Each group contains 5 letters. Number of ways of arranging 5 letters among themselves = 5! = 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 120. Required number of ways = (210 x 120) = 25200.

13. Two pipes A and B can fill a cistern in 37 minutes and 45 minutes respectively. Both pipes are opened. The cistern will be filled in just half an hour, if the B is turned off after:

A.5 min. B.9 min.               C.10 min. D.15 min.

Answer: B

Let B be turned off after x minutes. Then, Part filled by (A + B) in x min. + Part filled by A in (30 -x) min. = 1. x(2/75 + 1/45) + (30 - x). 2/75 = 1 11x/225 + (60 - 2x)/75 = 1 11x + 180 - 6x = 225. x = 9.

14. Pointing to an old man, Kailash said, "His son is my son's uncle." How is the old man related to Kailash?

A.6 days             B.7.5 days               C.9 days                   D.6.3 days

Answer: B

Ratio of time taken by A & B = 160:100 = 8:5 Suppose B alone takes x days to do the job. Then, 8:5::12:x = > 8x = 5*12 = > x = 15/2 days.

16. Worker A takes 8 hours to do a job. Worker B takes 10 hours to do the same job. How long it take both A & B, working together but independently, to do the same job ?

A.40/9 days          B.45/11 days C.39/7 days D.45/9 days

Answer: A

A's one hour work = 1/8. B's one hour work = 1/10. (A+B)'s one hour work = 1/8+1/10 = 9/40. Both A & B can finish the work in 40/9 days.

17. If A takes x days to do a work then B takes 2x days to do the same work then with in how many day's A will alone complete this work ?

A.28 days           B.29 days C.30 days                 D.27 days

Answer: D

= > 1/x+1/2x = 1/18 = > 3/2x = 1/18 = > x = 27 days. Hence, A alone can finish the work in 27 days.
