Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Ruby is what kind of programming language?

    • A.

      Strongly typed/Statically typed

    • B.

      Strongly typed/Dynamically typed

    • C.

      Weakly typed/Statically typed

    • D.

      Weakly typed/Dynamically typed

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Strongly typed/Dynamically typed
    Explanation
    Ruby is a programming language that is strongly typed, meaning that it enforces strict type checking, and dynamically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime rather than during compilation. In Ruby, variables can hold values of any type and can be reassigned to different types, allowing for flexibility in programming.

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. Class variable

    Variables that start with a capital letter are what kind of variables in Ruby

    • A.

      Local variable

    • B.

      Global variable

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. None of the above
    Explanation
    In Ruby, variables that start with a capital letter are considered constants. Constants are variables whose value cannot be changed once assigned. They are typically used to represent values that are not meant to be modified throughout the program. Therefore, the correct answer is "None of the above" as the given options (local variable, global variable, instance variable, and class variable) do not include constants.

    Explanation
    In Ruby, variables that start with a dollar sign ($) are considered global variables. Global variables can be accessed and modified from anywhere in the program, making them accessible across different scopes and classes. This means that any changes made to a global variable in one part of the program will affect its value in other parts of the program as well.

      What's your first name? (input) What's your last name? (input) My name is [Capitalized First Name] [Input Last Name]

    • D.

      None of the mentioned

    Correct Answer
    C. What's your first name? (input) What's your last name? (input) My name is [Capitalized First Name] [Input Last Name]
    Explanation
    The code prompts the user to enter their first name and stores it in the variable first_name.
    It capitalizes the first letter of the first name using .capitalize method and stores it in variable a.
    It then capitalizes the first letter of the first name in place using capitalize!.
    Next, the code prompts the user to enter their last name and stores it in the variable last_name.
    It capitalizes the first letter of the last name using .capitalize method and stores it in variable b.
    However, the capitalize method on last_name is not applied in place, so the last name remains unchanged.
    Finally, it prints out the message with #{first_name} and #{last_name}, where first_name and last_name are both capitalized due to previous modifications.
