The question is below:
What method(s) from the java.lang.Math class might method() be if the statement
method( -4.4 ) == -4;
is true.
a) round()
b) min()
c) trunc()
d) abs()
e) floor()
f) ceil()
The answer is a and f.but I think the only correct answer is a.Because the return type of ceil(double d) method is double.So the result of ceil(-4.4) should be -4.0

No, my dear friend the answers given are correct .Because the Math.ciel() function rounds off the value to the next higher integer which in case of -4.4 is -4.

In the question, they are asking about TRUE. So, f is also correct. Since -4.0 == -4.

only answer a is correct. Because ceil(-4.4) returns -4.0 and not -4.
