The answer is 3
"Hello" is the 1st object
"Bill" is another object.
And the result of s1+"Bill" is another object.
so in total 3 objects will be created.
Remember Anju! String Objects in java are immutable. You cannot change the content of a string object in anyway.

I'm closing this thread since it is a duplication of the other discussion http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum24/HTML/009041.html
