When u pass arguments to a method, only a copy of the reference /value is passed. so changes to the reference/value will not reflect in the calling method. But changes to the values referred by the reference will be reflected. Hope thats not too confusing

Xie,

Just remember that everything is passed by value. There is nothing like pointers.

As K&B says, and I love it. "Java is not C++". saying such thing by yourself will really(!) convience yourself to think java code seperately than C++ code.

By the way, output is 0. so option A is right.
