In Dans Mock-Exam about GC (Study Guide Chapter 8, Mock 1) is a problem about the correct answer.

Which of the following are true statements and which of the following could be a result of attempting to compile and run the program?
a. Prints: XY
b. Prints: YX
c. Prints: XXYY
d. Prints: YYXX
e. Nothing is printed.
f. There is no guarantee that the garbage collector will run.
g. Compiler Error.
h. Run Time Error.
i. None of the above.
-------------------------------------
Dan says answers a,b,e,f .
But, if answer f is correct (and i would say, thats the only correct answer) all other answers are incorrect - or ?

The question asks you what 'could' happen. So, if the garbage collection runs and the objects of class B are garbage collected, 'a' and 'b' might happen. Otherwise, if the gc does not run (which is what 'f' says) then nothing will be printed.

Thanx Vivek, i'd overseen this could. But is it correct to say - what could happen - or not.
Mayba all can happen - it could also happen a OutOfMemoryException - or ? ;-)
Okay, but this gives me a feeling for the real exam..... ;-)
