Is it valid to ask how many questions come from each topic or objective in the test?
If it is then please tell me how many questions come from each topic

It is random. You can count on at least 1 question from each topic, but how many you'll actually get will be different for everyone.

SCJP Tipline, etc.

It is random, but the good thing is that all of the questions from each section appear together (at least they did on my exam). So you know when you move from one section to the next.

FYI, I had 12 questions on Threads! The rest were pretty evenly distributed.
