Is a hashCode method which returns unique value for every object the most efficient one?

If yes, why? As per my understanding, if hashCode returns unique value for every object, then to find the appropriate bucket we have to compare the hashCode with that of every other object and this will give an O(n) time.
Thankyou Bert. For writing the book and for the wishes. Honoured

It is not that hard to achieve. I havent read the mentioned book but reading one book 10 times will not assure you a 100% score. Either include coding programs in the preparation or if you just want to read, I'd rather suggest reading 5 different books twice each

@Harsh Pensi haha you say just go for it?

Yes definitely. And even more positively since you've got a free retry.
Here in India we dont get a free retake. I wonder why that is so.

If there was, what would be the meaning of declaring the variable private?
And what was the hurry?

The difference between the two versions is not much. Is your exam date flexible? If not, stay cool and go ahead with 310-055.
Thanks a ton Devaka. And yeah, your ExamLab is a great piece of work

But i see that even the subclasses of the subclass cannot access the protected member being accessed by child.

This member cannot be accessed directly i.e. by using a reference of the class that defines it or the subclass. But it can be accessed in subclasses of the subclass only through inheritance.
Thanks a lot

Never heard of such questions being asked. Atleast I wasnt asked such stuff.
