I was taking brogden's hardest questions simulation and had a question. It asks for the instance methods of the Thread class. It offers toString() as a correct option. toString is a method of class Object not thread. I understand Thread inherits from Object, but this question seems ambiguous. For general advice on answering exam questions would all methods of all superclasses of a class be considered methods of the class?
Good question. I don't think you'll find trick questions like this one in the real exam. Although you should know of course, <CODE>inheritance</CODE>. Which dictates that a non-private method in a class is inherited by all subclasses in the same package (if the original access is package) or by all subclasses if the access is protected or public.
