I came across this question in one of the mock exams, but I feel the answer must change for the newer version of SCJP (JDK 1.4 and newer).



and the answer is given as


abcd



But as of JDK 1.4 stop() is deprecated method.
So given the above question should the answer be acd ?



Thanks!

stop is a deprecated method, but notice that the question asks which of these methods may stop a thread from executing instead of asking which of these methods will stop a thread from executing. Even if a method is deprecated, it may still work.
