( Multiple Choice Type Questions )

1. Choose the correct alternatives for the following : 10 × 1 = 10
int j;
for (int i=0;i<14;i++)
if (i<10)
j = 2 + i;

What is WRONG with the above code ?

a) Integer "j" is not initialized b) Nothing
c) You cannot declare integer i inside the for-loop declaration
d) The syntax of the "if " statement is incorrect
e) You cannot print integer values without converting them to strings.

ii) Which one of the following is a valid declaration of an applet ?

a) 1
b) 7
c) 8
d) 9
e) None, since there is a syntax error in the array declaration.

public int m1(int x)
int count = 1;
count +=x;
count +=m2(count);
count ++;
catch (Exception e)
