Hi,
I have a Little confusion. First feel free to correct me.

I think all the methods declare in a interface are public and abstract even the word �public� and �abstract� are not there.

Am I correct?
Because the answer given for the following question is 1, 3

public interface AQuestion
{
void someMethod();
}
The class which implements AQuestion
1. Should have someMethod which must necessarily be public.
2. Should have someMethod which could be "friendly" or public
3. Should have someMethod which should not throw any checked exceptions.
4. Should have someMethod which cannot be sychronized as sychronized is not in the signature of the interface defination
waiting for your reply.

You are correct. That's why 1) and 3) are correct.
Since the method is implicitly public so the class that implements this interface should necessarily have the public access modifier for this method else it'd be more restrictive than the original method in the interface. Hence 1) and 3) is obvious.

Hi,
the modifiers final and synchronized can also be used in implementing methods so 4 is right too!!.

interface AQuestion
{
public void someMethod();
}
public class demo implements AQuestion
{ synchronized final void someMethod(){
}
}

Do not forget to add public before the method in the implementing class as Rahul has done.

If we read the original answer 4 carefully, it says that someMethod cannot be synchronized. Rahul's code shows that someMethod() can be synchronized. Therefore 4 is incorrect, right?

Hi Deepak and Jim,
Both of you are right. One does have to read questions and answers very very carefully. I think in the test one does have sufficient time to do this.
