Which of these classes are valid threads ?


Correct option is :- class Big4 implements Runnable { public void run() {}}

IMO :- It is not a Thread since it is not extending Thread class ???

That code won't even compile, there are brackets instead of braces in the class declaration...

Threads can be formed by either extending from the Thread class or implementing the runnable interface. In this case the class implements the interface.

The Thread class by itself implements the Runnable interface.

question is not clear! if it would be Which of these classes are valid to start a thread on that? then Big4 is ok. in java every object is a thread, means all the object[ which are extends Thread or implements Runnable]can be accessible by threads. actually, Runnable gives the thread design to a class such as it must implement run method. and of course you can implement your own thread creation in that class like java.lang.Thread. but in general , you need java.land.Thread class to start a thread

in java every object is a thread,



This is an incorrect statement

which are extends Thread or implements Runnable]can be accessible by threads



If you meant that all classes that extend Thread or implement Runnable qualify as threads, you are right. Which is what the question asks a developer to identify.

but in general , you need java.land.Thread class to start a thread



The question is about a valid representation / definition of a thread and not about starting threads.

This article about a Thread written by Sun / Oracle can clear it up. Notice that a thread can be 'defined' using a Runnable interface if necessary -> http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E17409_01/javase/tutorial/essential/concurrency/runthread.html
