Java Questions & Answers – Class Fundamentals & Declaring objects

This section of our 1000+ Java MCQs focuses on class fundamentals & object declaration in Java Programming Language.

1. What is the stored in the object obj in following lines of code?
box obj;
a) Memory address of allocated memory of object.
c) Any arbitrary pointer
d) Garbage
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: Memory is allocated to an object using new operator. box obj; just declares a reference to object, no memory is allocated to it hence it points to NULL.

2. Which of these keywords is used to make a class?
a) class
b) struct
c) int
d) None of the mentioned
View Answer

Explanation: None.

3. Which of the following is a valid declaration of an object of class Box?
a) Box obj = new Box();
b) Box obj = new Box;
c) obj = new Box();
d) new Box obj;
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: None.

4. Which of these operators is used to allocate memory for an object?
a) malloc
b) alloc
c) new
d) give
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: Operator new dynamically allocates memory for an object and returns a reference to it. This reference is address in memory of the object allocated by new.

5. Which of these statement is incorrect?
a) Every class must contain a main() method.
b) Applets do not require a main() method at all.
c) There can be only one main() method in a program.
d) main() method must be made public.
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: Every class does not need to have a main() method, there can be only one main() method which is made public.

  5.             if (x == 9) { 
  6.                 int x = 8;
  7.                 System.out.println(x);

  9.         } 
  10.     }

a) 9
b) 8

  12.             obj1.length = 2;
  13.             obj1.width = 1;
  14.             obj2 = obj1;
  15.             System.out.println(obj2.height);
  16.         } 
  17.     }

a) 1
b) 2
