I see no shipstypos. What do you think is wrong? Apart from calling a Lion kitty? But I can only see m1, m2, and m3. Where's m4.

IPlease copy the code; it is much easier to read and search than screenshots. I can't read the smaller print on the screenshot.

Exactly!  m4 does not appear as a comment in the code, yet it is offered as option C.  Personally, I think Wiley should fix this.

Unfortunately, Wiley online test code does not lend itself (at all) to copying and/or reporting Errata efficiently.  I am reluctant to be reporting this, and have not reported others, for this reason.  By the way, Wiley has improved dramatically since I first used it and I highly recommend it.  I hope Wiley continues to improve things.  Hence, my motivation for reporting this error.

For the benefit of others that may not be aware, clicking on the attachment automatically enlarges (tremendously).  Also, pressing "Crl" and "+" at the same time are the short keys to zooming in (Chrome).

Charles,
Thank you for reporting this. Scott and I are updating this book for Java 11 early next year. So we are definitely interested in hearing about anything that is wrong/unclear/etc.

You are probably aware that we maintain our own errata list. I'm traveling for about a week and it's a pain to edit that page on the go, so I'll add this one when I get back home.

The best way to report errata is here at the ranch. The second best way is by emailing me. (I sent my email in a PM since you've been helpful.) The least effective way is to report it on the wiley engine because it has to go through some intermediaries to even get to us.

I'm looking forward to OCP Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 11 Programmer II Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-816 2nd Edition.  Thanks.

Added to errata list. Oddly this is correct in the physical book and only wrong online. (Which means Scott and i didn't make the error!)

I'm glad the "online transcription process error" didn't affect the correct answer.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
