Hexadecimal values are represented differently depending on the context. See Wikipedia - Hexadecimal for some examples.

Hexadecimal representation prefixed by # is used in HTML color designations. But in Java, hexadecimals are prefixed by 0x. So I would not expect to see # used on the exam.

We need more information. What's the context of this question? The Formatter class?

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
