Hi ,
in case of assertions we cant assert a value which is a argument of public method where as this is not applicable for private method!!!

so a is incorrect..whereas d is correct...

but i have doubt regarding other 2..both seems to be correct ...
answer given is b and d..why not c???


Thanks & Regards<br /> <br />-Srikanth

The code should function in the same manner regardless of assertions are enabled or disabled. In option c, if assertion is enabled the method will be called and do some changes, which will not happen if the assertion are disabled, which causes the code to behave in a assertion dependent manner.
I agree. Here's the link:
