It is a static method. Seems like a mistake

Hi Sandeep,

This question is correct. Why didn't you read the explanation provided with that question?

Ok, to avoid this confusion, please read the original question, answer and the explanation below:

Question:
Choose the available STATIC methods from the following list (choose two)

Options:
A. Thread.start();
B. Thread.setPriority()
C. Thread.sleep(int)
D. Thread.getName()
E. Thread.yield();
F. Thread.run();
G. Thread.currentThread();
H. Thread.join();

Correct Answer: EG

Explanation: Answer-C is wrong, because the method Thread.sleep(int) is NOT available! The available static method is Thread.sleep(long). (Pay attention for the method signature).


Hope you can understand.

Cheers,

Devaka.
