Actually i am having problem with the type of questions in which one class in some package needs to access some other class in other package for example it inherits that class,then what statements can be used to compile and run the program.

If you need to compile A class which is usint B class and B class Inherits C class.
First of all you just need to import B class.

Moreover you need to set CLASSPATH or -cp appropriately so that JVM could find A class and B class.

If B class is as follows com.kapoor.B.class then

1) It should be in the same directory structure as mentioned package.
2) you need to direct JVM upto the directory just above com. Dont help it beyond that directory otherwise it would no be able to find your B class.

Similar concept goes for A class too.

Remember your JVM should be able to find both the classes to complete java command without any error.

SCJP 6.0 96%
