Consider the following variables definitions.
Float f1 = new Float("10F");
Float f2 = new Float("10F");
Double d1 = new Double("10D");
Which of the following yields a boolean value of true.
a)f1 == f2
b)f1.equals(f2)
c)f2.equals(d1)
d)f2.equals(new Float("10"))
ANS: b,d
c is incorrect. why answer c returns false?

the equals method at wraper class will return true only if the argument is not null and is a same object that represents the same value as this object.

The equals() method defined in the java.lang.Float class is copied below.

In order to return true for an equality check, first of all, the object must be an instance of class Float.
