Hi,

Looks like a mistake to me.

Could it be the question is badly worded?
"Every instance of HttpServlet has only one instance of ServletContext" could be read as
a) Every single instance points to one and only one instance of a ServletContext object (i.e. they don't contain a map of them, just a reference to one, which would be true)
b) Every single instance points to the exact same ServletContext (which would be false for distributed applications).

Make sense?

Its because if the web application is in a distributed environment then each servlet will have one ServletContext per JVM
