The Java Descriptive Test is specially designed to effectively check the descriptive knowledge related to Java language, why don't you take this quiz to ascertain how well you know the Java language.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    One of the following is regarded as one of the most powerful basic data structures? 

    • A.

      Array

    • B.

      Tree

    • C.

      Stack

    • D.

      Queue

    Correct Answer
    B. Tree
    Explanation
    A tree is considered one of the most powerful basic data structures because it allows for efficient storage and retrieval of data. It is a hierarchical structure that consists of nodes connected by edges, with a single node known as the root. Trees provide a way to organize and represent data in a logical and efficient manner, making them useful for various applications such as file systems, databases, and network routing algorithms. Trees also enable fast searching, insertion, and deletion operations, making them a fundamental tool in computer science and programming.

  • 3. 

    JDBC is an acronym of 

    • A.

      Java Database Connectivity

    • B.

      Joint Development Control

    • C.

      Joint Database Connection

    • D.

      Java Database Code

    Correct Answer
    A. Java Database Connectivity
    Explanation
    JDBC stands for Java Database Connectivity. It is a Java API that allows Java programs to connect to and interact with a database. JDBC provides a set of classes and interfaces that enable developers to write database applications using standard SQL queries. It acts as a bridge between the Java programming language and databases, allowing developers to execute SQL statements, retrieve and manipulate data, and perform other database operations.

  • 4. 

    One of the following is not true about threads 

    • A.

      Threads exists as a subset of a process

    • B.

      Multiple threads can exist within one process, executing concurrently

    • C.

      Threads have separate address spaces

    • D.

      Systems with a single processor generally do not implement multithreading

    Correct Answer
    D. Systems with a single processor generally do not implement multithreading
    Explanation
    Threads exist as a subset of a process, meaning that they are created within a process and share the same resources. Multiple threads can exist within one process and execute concurrently, allowing for parallel execution. Threads do not have separate address spaces, they share the same address space as the process they belong to. However, systems with a single processor generally do not implement multithreading because there is only one physical processor to execute instructions, limiting the benefits of parallel execution.

    Who designed Java? 

    • A.

      Mike Sheridan

    • B.

      Patrick Naughton

    • C.

      Brendan Eich

    • D.

      James Gosling

    Correct Answer
    D. James Gosling
    Explanation
    James Gosling is the correct answer because he is widely recognized as the creator of the Java programming language. Gosling, along with his team at Sun Microsystems, developed Java in the mid-1990s. He is credited with designing the language to be simple, portable, and secure, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. Gosling's contributions to Java have had a significant impact on the field of software development, and his work has been recognized with numerous awards and honors.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Java can be said to be

    • A.

      Concurrent

    • B.

      Class-based

    • C.

      Object-oriented

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Java can be considered concurrent because it supports multithreading, allowing multiple tasks to run simultaneously. It is class-based because it uses classes and objects to create programs and define their behavior. Java is also object-oriented as it follows the principles of encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism, and abstraction. Therefore, all the given options are correct, making "All of the above" the correct answer.

    The following were the primary goals of the java language except 

    • A.

      It must be stringed, coded, and encrypted

    • B.

      It must be simple, object-oriented, and familiar

    • C.

      It must be architecture-neutral and portable

    • D.

      It must be interpreted, threaded, and dynamic

    Correct Answer
    A. It must be stringed, coded, and encrypted
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "It must be stringed, coded, and encrypted". This is because the primary goals of the Java language include being simple, object-oriented, and familiar; being architecture-neutral and portable; and being interpreted, threaded, and dynamic. However, there is no mention of the language needing to be "stringed, coded, and encrypted" in the primary goals of Java.

    In Java, programs are compiled into 

    • A.

      Java source code

    • B.

      Pseudo code

    • C.

      Bytecode

    • D.

      Machine code

    Correct Answer
    C. Bytecode
    Explanation
    When writing programs in Java, they are first compiled into bytecode. Bytecode is a low-level code that is platform-independent and can be executed by the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). This allows Java programs to be run on any device or operating system that has a JVM installed. The JVM then interprets the bytecode and executes the corresponding instructions. This compilation process into bytecode is what makes Java a "write once, run anywhere" language.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    In order for Java programs to be executed, it must be compiled how many times? 

    • A.

      Twice

    • B.

      Once

    • C.

      Thrice

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Twice
    Explanation
    Java programs must be compiled twice in order to be executed. The first compilation converts the source code into bytecode, which is platform-independent. The second compilation, known as Just-In-Time (JIT) compilation, translates the bytecode into machine code specific to the underlying hardware, allowing the program to be executed.
