According to the example shown on page 581 of the HF book, <unchecked> tag should be empty. But, then on page 596 for question #2 which says:
What's true about methods that should run without being checked for authorization?
why is option B (They can be listed in the <unchecked> element) correct.
As per the example nothing should be listed in <unchecked> element.

Ha, I remember that part of the book. It's wrong. Just pat yourself on the back and move on.

Yep -- Nathaniel's right--this is bad wording on our part. Instead of saying "...in the <unchecked/> element" it should have said something like, "...with the <unchecked/> element" or "...using the <unchecked/> element." So, it wasn't meant to be a trick question about whether you knew that <unchecked/> is technically an empty tag. It was just supposed to test whether you knew about <unchecked/> and its relationship to method permissions.
Nathaniel, just wanted to say that you're awesome.
cheers,
Kathy
