I have the question following:

For a given ServletResponse, which two retrieve an object for writing text data?
A. response.getWriter()
B. response.getOutputStream()
C. response.getOutputWriter()
D. response.getWriter().getOutputStream()
E. response.getWriter(Writer.OUTPUT_TEXT)

I only see one alternative correct(obviously letter A), but the question asks for 2 answers.

Thanks

If the stress is on writing "text" data, then getting PrintWriter is only option. So I think you are correct.

response.getWriter() and
response.getOutputStream()

Since C, D, and E all use nonexistent methods, B has to be the other correct answer. I suppose since getOutputStream returns a ServletOutputStream, and that has methods that include print(String s) and println(String s), it's certainly possible to write text using a stream.

So, while A is clearly the best choice for writing text, B is also correct.

Hi,
The correct options are:
A. response.getWriter(): Returns a PrintWriter object that can send character text to the client.
B. response.getOutputStream():Returns a ServletOutputStream suitable for writing binary data in the response.

So getwriter() seems to be perfect match ,as its asking for text to be written.
