Can anybody explain the statement "Not directly stopping the thread".
Ques 2)Arrange the methods which are invoked on a thread from directly stopping the thread to not directly stopping the thread.
I have seen this type of question in lot of mock scjp exams..

Methods that might cause the current thread to temporarily stop execution -
yield()
sleep()
wait()
interrupt()
join()

Cheers!
