Your answer is incorrect.
3 and 4 are the correct answers. Variables may start with _ $ or alpha. Numerics may appear later in the variable name.
Integer is a correct variable name as it is not a reserved word.
What study text are you using? All this should be covered there. . .

Sorry to trouble you Jim,
Somehow I got a wrong impression that Integer, Character.. Are should not be used as variable names.
Now I am clear.
Thanks for help

they probably "should" not be used -- 'cause it could cause the programmer to be confused while writing the code... but that doesn't mean that they "could" not be used.
