I encounted a question like this:

what is the default value of isELIgnored attribute for a JSP 2.0 page?

A. True
B. False
C. None of the above

I thought the answer should be "false", so I selected C. But the given correct answer is B. Which one is really correct? Please confirm, thanks.

looks like you had overlooked the option? the correct answer is B. False and you selected C by mistake?

I mean to say the correct answer is "false", not "False". Am I right?

Oh..I see your point. I think they just didn't care about the case sensitivity. But you are ritgh it should be "false" instead of False.

How am I suppose to do if this is in the real exam?
Is case sensitivity ever be a matter we should be aware of in the real exam?

someone please confirm this, thanks.

Hi reubin,

I don't think you would find such ambiguous question in the real exam. As far as I know the real exam mentions everything you need to know to answer the question properly.

I just remember the same situation when I wrote the SCJP 5 exam : In many mock exams, the questions regarding assertions even did not mention whether or not assertions were enabled (which is not enabled by default) and when I saw the correct answer provided by the mock, the question was assuming that assertions were enabled. However, in the real exam, all questions I got about assertions did EXPLICITLY mention whether or not they were enabled.

I don't think you should worry about that. Did you get the point ?
