Here's the question from JQ+
Question ID :1003595458180
Consider the following code:

The answer given is class created inside the main method is final, stating that all anonymous inner classes are implicitly final, understand that well enough. However, they also give an answer that an object of class B cannot be created in main simply by doing new B();
Only one answer is chooseable, both are correct. Am I missing something here?

I am not sure whether B can inherit from A and at the same time has lesser accessibility(default) than A(public).

Jason, you are right. The other option should also be marked correct as given in the explanation.

Heya Paul, thanks for the clarification, thought I was overlooking some detail and was just racking my brain trying to figure it out! Plus, I wanted to see if other people got the same answer, since I've mistakenly thought what was supposed to be the answer before
