// insert code here...


which statement will intialize the out variable?

a) PrintWriter out=response.getWriter();
b) PrintWriter out=response.GetOutputStream();
c) OutputStream out=response.getOutputStream();
d) ServletOutputStream out=response.getServletOutput();

My answer is C. but the given answer is a.
I read somewhere that for binary data need to use getOutPutStream.
Please correct me if am wrong

What is the source of this question (mock exam?)? I agree that C should be the answer given that you are setting the content type to be an image.
