Hello. It's the first time for me to post a message.
I've found a question about Overload Method:
----------------------------
public class MethodOver{
private int x,y;
private float z;
public void setVar(int a, int b, float c){
x = a;
y = b;
z = c;
}
}
Which two overload the setVar method?
A. void setVar (int a, int b, float c){x=a; y=b; z=c;}
B. public void setVar (int a, float c, int b) {setVar(a,b,c);}
C. public void setVar (int a, float c, int b){this(a,b,c);}
D. public void setVar (int a, float b){x=a;z=b;}
E. public void setVar (int ax, int by, float cz){x=ax; y=by; z=cz;}
-----------------------------
I think that the answer should be B, C, D while the suggested answer are B and D only.
I would like to ask that why C is incorrected?
Thanks for your helping.

Hi WK
Well option C is correct but its implementation is wrong I guess that's why they have not included C in the correct answer set. {this(a,b,c);} this is wrong. But this no doubte a badly worded question.

Answer C is not valid.

The above code will give compile time error.
Using the keyword *this* like in the above example is wrong. It can only be in the first line of a constructor. this(a, b, c) will try to call a constructor with 3 args of compatible data type.

Hi Rajeshwari
As I said earlier that though the implementation of the method is wrong I guess you can still call it an overloaded method. I would call it an incorrectly implemented overloaded method.
