I have a doubt in Q.5 Chapter-Generics and Collections of Kathy Sierrra book for SCJP 6.

Question:


This class is to be updated to make use of appropriate generic types, with no changes in
behavior (for better or worse). Which of these steps could be performed? (Choose three.)

A. Replace line 13 with
private Map<String, int> accountTotals = new HashMap<String, int>();

B. Replace line 13 with
private Map<String, Integer> accountTotals = new HashMap<String, Integer>();

C. Replace line 13 with
private Map<String><Integer>> accountTotals = new HashMap<String><Integer>>();

D. Replace lines 17–20 with
int total = accountTotals.get(accountName);
if (total == null) total = 0;
return total;

E. Replace lines 17–20 with
Integer total = accountTotals.get(accountName);
if (total == null) total = 0;
return total;

F. Replace lines 17–20 with
return accountTotals.get(accountName);

G. Replace line 24 with
accountTotals.put(accountName, amount);

H. Replace line 24 with
accountTotals.put(accountName, amount.intValue());

Correct Answers are B,E,G

My doubt is why is choice D incorrect.

E. Replace lines 17–20 with

Look accountTotals would return a Integer Object,
If you choose D a boxing-unboxing will happened.

with no changes in behavior (for better or worse).
