Question 53: A component can be resized horizontally, but not vertically, when it is placed in which region of a BorderLayout?
Select the one right answer.
a.North or South
b.East or West
c.Center
d.North, South, or Center
e.any region
//ANSWER IS A , BUT I THOUGHT IT WERE THE EAST OR WEST REGIONS WHICH
HONOURED THE PREFERRED WIDTH OF THE COMPONENT WHILE THE HEIGHT WERE
RESTRICTED ??
What method from Java 1.0.2 can you use to remove a Component from a user
interface display?
Select all right answers.
a.disable()
b.hide()
c.remove()
d.delete()
e.unhook()
//ANSWER IS A, BUT I REMEMBER READING ABOUT THE REMOVE() METHOD IN THE
CONTAINER CLASS, that performs the opposite of add(), isnt that also going to work in
this case ??

Hi,
Given:
Select the one right answer.
a.North or South
b.East or West
c.Center
d.North, South, or Center
e.any region
The correct answer is A, i.e, BorderLayout honors the preferred height of the Component in the North and South regions.
East & West - BorderLayout honors the preferred width and not the height.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
