    A Vehicle object is denoted with the following label.

    • A.

      Vehicle

    • B.

      Vehicle(italics)

    • C.

      Vehicle

    • D.

      :Vehicle(underlined)

    Correct Answer
    D. :Vehicle(underlined)
    Explanation
    The correct answer is ":Vehicle(underlined)" because it follows the convention of denoting the label of a Vehicle object. The underlining of "Vehicle" suggests that it is the class or type of the object, while the colon before "Vehicle" indicates that it is a label for the object. The other options, such as "vehicle" and "Vehicle(italics)", do not adhere to this convention.

    • B.

      Powerboat is a superclass

    • C.

      Boat is a superclass

    • D.

      Sailboat is a superclass

    Correct Answer
    C. Boat is a superclass
    Explanation
    The given hierarchy shown in the figure suggests that Boat is a superclass. This means that there are other classes that inherit from the Boat class, such as Powerboat and Sailboat. Being a superclass implies that Boat is a more general or abstract class, while the subclasses (Powerboat, Sailboat) are more specific or specialized versions of the Boat class.
