There is a question in Whizlabs simulator:

As a part of your new application, you need to connect to a database. You do not have any access to the database server so you can not change the odbc driver that's currently installed. How do you connect?

a) CORBA
b) JMS-JNI
c) JDBC-ODBC bridge
d) JDBC

As per my understanding, the correct answer should be c) as odbc driver is already installed.

Answer as per simulator is d).
Reason: choice c) is not necessary as the question does not say that you can not use a normal JDBC driver.

My question is:
1) out of 4 types of drivers, which is "normal jdbc driver"
2) why is choice d) preferred over choice c)

Please suggest.

Thanks
