I wld like to focus light on errors in the Sarga's test1.The errors are in the answers.I shall write the question and ans given by Sarga and the ans I feel right.
Please Correct me If I am Wrong

Q.1)Given the following class definition:
class A {
protected int i;
A(int i) {
this.i = i;
Which of the following would be a valid inner class for this class?
Select all valid answers.
a) class B {
b) class B extends A {
c) class B {
B() {
System.out.println("i = " + i);
d) class B {
class A {
e) class A {
Sarga's Answer: A
My Answer : A & C.Option C is an example of valid inner class
26) A sample question provided by Sun
Which correctly create an array of five empty Strings?
A.String a [] = new String [5];
for (int i = 0; i < 5; a[i++] = "");
B.String a [] = {"", "", "", "", ""};
C.String a [5];
D.String [5] a;
E.String [] a = new String [5];
for (int i = 0; i < 5; a[i++] = null);

Sarga' Answer : A & B
My Answers : A,B and E
Cause in option A,array is created and filled with null values.So in option E ,it does the same thing. In any case,array will have null values.

Hi Sarga,
Q1. You're right. Answer C is a valid inner class.
Q2. A 'null' is not the same as an empty string. Answer E is incorrect. You'd be creating an array of null objects, not empty strings.
Hope that helps.

But does that mean empty string array is not filled with nulls?

An empty String array is filled with empty Strings
"" is not equal to null
Try this:
String s = "";
s = s.trim();
Then try this:
String s = null;
s = s.trim();
