When a UML Class attribute is scoped at the classifier level, it is implemented with which one of the following C++ and Java terms?
a) Public
b) Final
c) Private
d) Protected
e) Static
What's the answer for this question?
What is classifier level?

For encapsulation, attributes should be scoped as private. In ANSI C++, Class is viewed as a form of classifier so as struct, union, typedef, instantiated class, and enumerations.

I think it is e. Classifier level means class/interface level and that is "static" in these options.

I think that Alan is right, though access classifier would be much more clear. I don't see any connection between classifier and static.
Its good OO practice to use private (access) classifier for attributes (aka. fields, member variables, properties)

correct me if i am wrong
