The answer given is b,c,e.
The exam was created before JVM 1.4. So I'm pretty sure that b is not correct. I think e is correct. How about c?
-->The System.gc() method can be used to request garbage collection, -->Although Java provides facilities to invoke the garbage collection, explicitly, there are no guarantees that it will be run. The program can only request that garbage collection be performed, but there is no way that garbage collection can be forced.
Above two statements says option 'b' is wrong know. friends, pls correct me if i am wrong.
