Question 129)
public interface AQuestion
void someMethod();
The class which implements AQuestion
Should have someMethod which must necessarily be public.
Should have someMethod which could be "friendly" or public
Should have someMethod which should not throw any checked exceptions.
Should have someMethod which cannot be sychronized as sychronized is not in the signature of the interface defination
the ans are 1st and 3rd. why is 1st choice right? i thought 2nd was correct. friendly to friendly for overriding should be fine.

Methods declared in an interface are inherently public, even if you don't include the keyword. Therefore the implemented method must be public in any class. In any event, answers 1 and 2 are mutually exclusive, so its either/or.
The synchronized keyword is not inheritable. Any method can be synchronized regardless of the method it is overriding.
