    • A.

      Instantiation

    • B.

      Reference

    • C.

      Variable

    • D.

      Abstraction

    Correct Answer
    A. Instantiation
    Explanation
    Instantiation refers to the process of creating an object from a class. It involves allocating memory for the object and initializing its state. In other words, instantiation is the act of creating an instance of a class, which can then be used to access the methods and properties defined within that class. Therefore, the correct answer for this question is "instantiation".

  • 2. 

    Which of the following is not a part of the string class?

    • A.

      CompareTo

    • B.

      Length

    • C.

      Concat

    • D.

      ToString

    Correct Answer
    D. ToString
    Explanation
    The toString method is not a part of the string class. The toString method is a method of the Object class, which is the superclass of all classes in Java. It is used to return a string representation of an object. However, the other options (compareTo, length, and concat) are all methods that are directly available in the string class. The compareTo method is used to compare two strings lexicographically, the length method is used to return the length of a string, and the concat method is used to concatenate two strings.

    Applets open up using the program called AppletViewer within JCreator. This program allows developers to view and test their applets before deploying them on the web. It provides a virtual environment for running and debugging applets, making it an essential tool for applet development.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Applets and Applications are coded the same way.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Applets and Applications are not coded the same way. Applets are small applications that are designed to run within a web browser, while applications are standalone programs that can be run independently. Applets are typically written in Java and require a Java Virtual Machine to run, whereas applications can be written in various programming languages and do not require a specific runtime environment. Therefore, the statement that "Applets and Applications are coded the same way" is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Applets use a X and Y coordinate system.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Applets use a X and Y coordinate system because they are graphical programs that are designed to be embedded within web pages. The X and Y coordinate system allows applets to position and manipulate graphical elements on the screen. This system is commonly used in computer graphics to represent the location of objects in a two-dimensional space. Therefore, the statement "Applets use a X and Y coordinate system" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    The X,Y coordinate in the upper left hand corner of an Applet screen would be___,____.

    • A.

      100,100

    • B.

      50,50

    • C.

      0,0

    • D.

      -50,-50

    Correct Answer
    C. 0,0
    Explanation
    The X,Y coordinate in the upper left hand corner of an Applet screen is (0,0) because the coordinate system used in computer graphics and programming typically starts at (0,0) in the upper left corner of the screen. This means that the X-axis increases as you move to the right and the Y-axis increases as you move down the screen. Therefore, the upper left corner has the coordinates (0,0).

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    One can use negative values within x,y coordinates when designing a Java Applet?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In Java Applet, negative values within x, y coordinates can be used. This allows for positioning elements or drawing graphics outside the visible area of the applet window. It can be useful in certain cases, such as when creating animations or implementing scrolling functionality.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Custom colors can be added into a Java applet

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In Java, custom colors can be added into a Java applet. The Graphics class in Java provides methods such as setColor() that allow developers to specify custom colors using RGB values. These custom colors can then be used to draw shapes, fill areas, or set the background color in a Java applet. Therefore, the statement "Custom colors can be added into a Java applet" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    Page.setColor (new Color(255,255,255)); would set the color within an Applet to.

    • A.

      White

      Black

    • C.

      Red

    • D.

      Blue

    Correct Answer
    A. White
    Explanation
    The given code page.setColor (new Color(255,255,255)); sets the color within an Applet to white. The values (255,255,255) represent the RGB values for white, where each value ranges from 0 to 255. Therefore, the correct answer is White.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Page.setColor (new Color(0,0,0)); would set the color within an Applet to.

    • A.

      Black

    • B.

      White

    • C.

      Red

    • D.

      Blue

    Correct Answer
    A. Black
    Explanation
    The given code is setting the color within an Applet to black. The method setColor is being called on the page object, and a new Color object is being passed as an argument with RGB values (0,0,0), which represents black. Therefore, the color within the Applet will be set to black.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Print and println are the same

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "print and println are the same" is false. Although both "print" and "println" are used to display output in programming, they have different functionalities. "print" displays the output without adding a new line, while "println" displays the output and adds a new line after it. This subtle difference allows for more control over the formatting and presentation of the output.
