Here's the answer to last week's quiz, courtesy of Sar Maroof:

1. Calling the MyAbstract constructor

MyAbstract() // Calling MyAbstruct() no-arg constructor
       x*=2 = 3*2 = 6
       method(3)                  // MySuper class overwrites method one-arg
       method() + 3               // method() no-arg is overwritten in MySub
       return x + 5 = 0 + 5 = 5   // Because x refers to the x in MySuper (Not the x of MyAbstract), which is a subclass of MyAbstract
       method() + 3 = 5 + 3 = 8;
       method(3) returns 8;
       printing the first x = 8;

Printing the first x = 8;

2. Calling the MySuper() constructor

int x = 2
    MySuper() // Calling MySuper() no-arg constructor
      method() // method() no-arg is overwritten in MySub
      return x + 5 = 2 + 5 = 7; // x refers to the x in MySuper, which is = 2
      printing the second x = 7;

Printing the second x = 7;

3. Calling MySub() Constructor

// Calling MySub() no-arg constructor
      x += 3 = 2 + 3 = 5

Printing the third x = 5

The Result is: -x8 – x7 – x5

Here is the next quiz:

The Following Program Determines the Status of Twenty Seats in a Movie Theater:

public class Seat {
     public enum Status {
         FREE, RESERVED, OCCUPIED;
     }
     private Status status;
     private int row = 1;
     private int col = 1;
     public static final int NUMBER_ROWS = 5;
     public static final int NUMBER_COLS = 4;
     public Seat(int row, int col) {
         this.row = row;
         this.col = col;
         this.status = Status.FREE;
     }
     private Seat[][] hall = new Seat[NUMBER_ROWS + 1][NUMBER_COLS + 1];
     public void initHall(){
         Seat seat = new Seat(0,0);
         for(int row = 1; row <= NUMBER_ROWS; row ++ ) {
             for(int col = 1; col <= NUMBER_COLS; col ++ ) {
                 seat = new Seat(row,col);
                 hall[row][col] = seat;
                 if(row <= 4 && col < 3) {
                     seat.status = Status.RESERVED;
                 }
                 if(row >= 3 && col != 3) {
                     seat.status = Status.OCCUPIED;
                 }
             }
         }
     }
     public static void main(String[] args){
         Seat seat = new Seat(0,0);
         seat.initHall();
     }
}


Purpose of the Quiz

  1. This is a practical example to learn some tricks and behaviors of Java multidimensional arrays.
  2. This is a practical example of enumeration.
  3. This will help you imagine how conditional statements change the results, as well as stretch your mind.
  4. This provides an exercise to write a method to support your theory.

This quiz is aimed at intermediate to advanced Java programmers. Have fun! Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
