Trivial Question on "Fill in the Blank Type"

For a Fill in the Blank Type question like the following
What keyword, when used in front of a method, must also appear in front of the class?
Fill in the blank.
Should the answer be "abstract" or abstract??
My doubt is whether the double quote around the answer is significant??

Well when taking mock exams in JPlus I did not have to put "" around answers. I would not think that you should have to assuming JPlus works like the real thing.

In JQPlus, I also did not put any double qoutes in fill in the blank type of the questions. The answers were treated as correct. Wonder what about the sun exam??

Logically speaking, we don't have to put "" around abstract but if they ask String s = "java"; what's the result of s.substring(1,3). Then we will have to type "av".
Experts, please rescue us.
