Q44 From Applied reasoning

Which of the following statements about Files are true?
One of the options is "A new file object can be created by invoking createNewFile method".
I didn't select the above option as I felt that a new file
can be created in the filesystem by using the createNewFile method. Since the word 'object' was used in the option, I felt it was not the right option, but it is a valid answer according to the author.
Kindly give your comments.

Hi Sajida,
I think your right and the question was poorly worded. The <code>File.createNewFile()</code> method returns a boolean not an Object.
