Hi Maria,
I would say:
d) wait it's an Object method and releases the lock on the particular object whose reference was used to call it.
e) stop it's a Thread method and releases all the locks one Thread has.
------------
a) yield keeps the locks and only allows Threads that are in a runnable state (not waiting on a lock for instance) to run.
b) sleep keeps the lock and temporarily cease execution for the specified time
c) interrupt is called from another Thread on a Thread that is waiting, sleeping, or blocked in a I/O
d) suspend holds its threads.

It was my experience that the deprecated thread methods, stop, suspend and resume, do not appear on the exam. Of course, further input from Kathy or Bert would be helpful.
 
Would you turn that thing down? I'm controlling a mind here! Look ... look at the tiny ad ...
