2. Given:
Integer i = new Integer (42);
Long 1 = new Long (42);
Double d = new Double (42.0);
Which two expressions evaluate to True? (Choose Two)
A. (i ==1)
B. (i == d)
C. (d == 1)
D. (i.equals (d))
E. (d.equals (i))
F. (i.equals (42))
I was given the answer D,E. But both D and E result in "false", because english is not my native language, so maybe I misunderstanded the question sentence: "evaluate to True", does it mean "which two of the options could be compiled fine?" rather than "get result of "true""?
thanks!

The answer given is WRONG, all the cases evaluate to false. In wrapper classes, if the argument passed in the equal() method is of a different run-time type, then the equals method returns false. The following code prints false 3 times.
