Given the following code, which statements concerning the objects referenced through the member variables i, j and k are true, given that any thread may call the methods a, b and c at any time?
class Counter{
int v = 0;
synchronized void inc() { v++;}
synchronized void dec() { v--;}
}
public class Q7ed5{
Counter i;
Counter j;
Counter k;
public synchronized void a(){
i.inc();
System.out.println("a");
i.dec();
}
public synchronized void b(){
i.inc(); j.inc(); k.inc();
System.out.println("b");
i.dec(); j.dec(); k.dec();
}
public void c(){
k.inc();
System.out.println("c");
k.dec();
}
}
1. i.v is guaranteed always to be 0 or 1
2. j.v is guaranteed always to be 0 or 1
3. k.v is guaranteed always to be 0 or 1
4. j.v will always be greater than or equal to k.v at any given time
5. k.v will always be greater than or equal to j.v at any given time
Can you please let me know the correct answer for this.
Thanks
