6. (3 pts) The following code compiles. Do you see any problems with the code? Write NONE if no problems or
invalid operations are present. You can assume the method is in a class that compiles.
public void check(double val, int x) {
if (x > 0) {
if (val == 4.5) {
Answer: We should not be comparing floating point values.
7. (3 pts) How many default constructors do we have in the following class?
public class Apple {
private String flavor;
a. 0
b. 1
c. The above class does not compile.
d. None of the above
8. (6 pts) What is the output of the following program? If an exception is thrown indicate why.
public class Values {
public int a;
public boolean b;
public String c;
public Values() {
String d = c;
System.out.println(a + ", " + b + ", " + d);
public static void main(String[] args) {
Values v = new Values();
Answer: 0, false, null
