2. 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

Ans. 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.

20. 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

Ans. C

Explanation:

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.
