I came across this question in one of the mock exams

I was really surprised about the answer they have given

Is this the way , questions will be in SCJP1.4?

class TestLevel{
public static void main(String a[]){
int i=0;
int y=i;

Choices ( choose any 1 )

1. Compile time error
2. Runtime Error
3. Compiles with warnings.
4. Compiles without warnings.
5. None of these

I choosed answer 4

But on final result it said the answer is 5 ...

I agree answer 5 is also right.
But why not 4 ?

It could just be a mistake on the listing of the answer. It seems like compiles with warnings and compiles without warnings are two statements that can never both be true or false at the same time.

" Compiles with warnings "

" Compiles without warnings"

Is possible in any code, if we have any deprecated methods used we would have " Compiles with warnings "

What I mean is if 5 is true, that none of 1, 2, 3, and 4 happen, this couldn't happen since, assuming the code compiles, you couldn't have "compiles with warnings" and "compilers without warning" both being false at the same time.

I belive answer 4 should be the right choice. i tried it and compiled. it just compiles fine. no errors & warnings.

answer 5 does not make any sense at all since option 4 is the best given answer.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
