D.Cartesian join

Answer: A

2. Which statement is true about a static nested class?

A.You must have a reference to an instance of the enclosing class in order to instantiate it.
B.It does not have access to nonstatic members of the enclosing class.
C.It's variables and methods must be static.
D.It must extend the enclosing class.

Answer: B

Option B is correct because a static nested class is not tied to an instance of the enclosing class, and thus can't access the nonstatic members of the class (just as a static method can't access nonstatic members of a class). Option A is incorrect because static nested classes do not need (and can't use) a reference to an instance of the enclosing class. Option C is incorrect because static nested classes can declare and define nonstatic members. Option D is wrong because it just is. There's no rule that says an inner or nested class has to extend anything.

3. Which constructs an anonymous inner class instance?

A.Runnable r = new Runnable() { };
B.Runnable r = new Runnable(public void run() { });
C.Runnable r = new Runnable { public void run(){}};
D.System.out.println(new Runnable() {public void run() { }});

Answer: D

D is correct. It defines an anonymous inner class instance, which also means it creates an instance of that new anonymous class at the same time. The anonymous class is an implementer of the Runnable 
interface, so it must override the run()method of Runnable. A is incorrect because it doesn't override the run() method, so it violates the rules of interface implementation. B and C use incorrect syntax.

4. Which of the following range is a valid long double?

A.3.4E-4932 to 1.1E+4932

colonial times were expected to investigate and ask questions, this does not necessarily mean that they were more informed than today’s jurors.
