  1.     class Output 
  2.     {
  3.         public static void main(String args[])
  4.         {
  5.             Double i = new Double(257.5);  
  6.             Double x = i.MAX_VALUE;
  7.             System.out.print(x);
  8.         }
  9.     }

a) 0
b) 1.7976931348623157E308
c) 1.7976931348623157E30
d) None of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: The super class of Double class defines a constant MAX_VALUE above which a number is considered to be infinity. MAX_VALUE is 1.7976931348623157E308.
Output:

$ javac Output.java
$ java Output
1.7976931348623157E308

  4.         {
  5.             Double i = new Double(257.5);  
  6.             Double x = i.MIN_VALUE;
  7.             System.out.print(x);
  8.         }
  9.     }

a) 0
b) 4.9E-324
c) 1.7976931348623157E308
d) None of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: The super class of Byte class defines a constant MIN_VALUE below which a number is considered to be negative infinity. MIN_VALUE is 4.9E-324.
Output:

$ javac Output.java
$ java Output
4.9E-324

7. What will be the output of the following Java program?

  1.     class Output 
  2.     {
  3.         public static void main(String args[])
  4.         {
  5. 	    Double i = new Double(257.578123456789);  
  6.             float x = i.floatValue();
  7.             System.out.print(x);
  8.         }
  9.     }

a) 0
b) 257.0
c) 257.57812
d) 257.578123456789
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: floatValue() converts the value of wrapper i into float, since float can measure till 5 places after decimal hence 257.57812 is stored in floating point variable x.
Output:

$ javac Output.java
$ java Output
257.57812
