I think you are right, only Anonymous classes do not have constructors. All other forms of innerclasses have constructors.
Guess there is a error in the exam.
Regds.

Guys Let me know why are the options b,d,e are wrong.
Other clarification is C would be correct irrespective of Whether it is declared within constructor A() or within a class.
Also if anybody can clear the cobwebs on why other answers are wrong.

I think choices a, b, and c are correct. Inner classes CAN extend its enclosing class (though not the other way around).
d and e are incorrect since an inner class CANNOT have the same name as an enclosing class.

Hi,
B is wrong because it does not provide a constructor. so there will be a default constructor with a default call to the constructor of the super class with no argument, but there is no constructor in super class(A) with no argument.
feel free to correct me.
