In your code above, the methods addX() and addY() are not synchronized, therefore they can be executed by more than one thread at a time. Only when you synchronize the methods you can guarantee that it will give the same result everytime it runs. Also remember that thread scheduler, is platform dependant, therefore you can see the same output on your machine everytime you run the program, but if you move to another OS, you may get different result. that's why answer C is correct. hope that helps! I think answer C should be re-worded as Will print but not necessarily in an order (eg: 123124 3) [ July 28, 2002: Message edited by: Amir Ghahrai ]
