Back to Question 6

Answer 5

B. Runtime Error

Explanation 5


There are some situations involving casting where the compiler cannot identify an erroneous condition that is later identified by the runtime system.This is one of those cases.

This program begins with an array of type double []. Thereference to that array is converted to type Object . Then it is cast to type String []. All of these operations are allowed bythe compiler.

However, at runtime, the runtime system expects to find references to objects of type String in the elements of the array. What it finds instead is values of type double stored in the elements of the array.

As a result, a ClassCastException is thrown. Since it isn't caught and handled by the program, the program terminateswith the following error message showing on the screen.

java.lang.ClassCastException: [D at Worker.doArrays(Ap068.java:17)at Ap068.main(Ap068.java:6)

Answer 4

C. 1.0 2.0

Explanation 4

Finally, we got it right

Finally, we managed to get it all together. The program compiles and executes correctly. This program illustrates the assignment of an array object'sreference to a reference variable of type Object , and the casting of that reference of type Object back to the correct array type in order to gain access to the elements in the array.

But don't go away, there is a lot more that you need to know about arrays in Java. We will look at some of those things in the questions that follow.

Back to Question 4

Answer 3

A. Compiler Error

Explanation 3

Must use the correct cast syntax

While it is possible to store an array object's reference in a reference variable of type Object , and later cast it back to an array type to gain access to the elements in the array, you must use the correctsyntax in performing the cast. This is not the correct syntax for performing that cast. It is missing the empty square brackets required to indicate a reference to an array object.

A portion of the compiler error produced by JDK 1.3 is shown below:

Ap066.java:17: inconvertible types found : java.lang.Objectrequired: double double C = (double)B;

Back to Question 3

Answer 2

A. Compiler Error

Explanation 2

Must cast back to an array type

This program illustrates another very important point. Although you can assign an array object's reference to a reference variable of type Object , you cannot gain access to the elements in the array while treating it as type Object . Instead, you must cast it back to an array type before you can gain access to the elements in the array object.

A portion of the compiler error produced by JDK 1.3 is shown below:

Ap065.java:18: array required, but java.lang.Object found B[0]+ " " + B[1]);

Back to Question 2

Answer 1

C. I'm OK

Explanation 1

Assigning array reference to type Object

This program illustrates a very important point. You can assign an array object's reference to an ordinary reference variable of type Object . Note that I didn't say Object[] . The empty square brackets are not required when the type is Object .

Standard containers or collections

Later on, when we study the various containers in the Java class libraries (see the Java Collections Framework) , we will see that they store references to all objects, including array objects, as type Object . Thus, if it were not possible to store a reference to an array object in a reference variable of type Object , it would not be possible to use the standard containers to store references to array objects.

Because it is possible to assign an array object's reference to a variable of type Object , it is also possible to store array object references in containers of type Object .

sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
