"Adding menus to an aplication requires a class that implements the MenuContainer interface.
The classes in the java.awt package that implement MenuContainer are Component, Frame, Menu,
and MenuBar, so practically anything can host a menu."

Yes and no.....
the restrictions to add menus donot come from the abv
stmt of yours alone....there is more to it.
there are two types of menus - pull-down and pop-up
menus. Pull-down menus are accessed via a menubar.
Menu-bars can be attached only to frames. Hence
pull-down menus exist only in frames.
The other type of menus, pop-up, can be added
to anything else which implements Menucontainer interface.
While I may not be complete, plese refer to the JLS and
read more deeply.
Also the exam (as I know) tests only the pull-down menus.
