Sherin,
During the read() call, the thread is still alive and listening for any input. It only goes into a waiting state. If the thread stops, then it wont be able to read the input. So, e is wrong.

I think e is also right.
A thread goes from runnable state to blocked state with any I/O request and waits for the I/O to finish. Once the I/O is finished it goes to ready state and competes, for the processor's attention, with other threads in ready state.

srikrish,
I saw your reply after posting mine. I think it depends what stopping a thread means. Does it mean Drop dead or Stop hogging the CPU ?
thanks Sandep
