What is wrong with the following code, if any?
(Select one correct answer)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

public class Test005
{
public static void main(String args[])
{
Thread.yield(); //1
Thread t = Thread.currentThread();
synchronized(t) { //2
t.notify(); //3
}
Object o = new Object();
System.out.println(null == o); //4
}
}


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A: The code does not compile due to line //1.
B: The code does not compile due to line //2.
C: The code does not compile due to line //3.
D: The code does not compile due to line //4.
E: There is nothing wrong with the code.

i answered d, since u r comparing null == o; but the correct answer is e.

So, why I cannot do so?

Just like you will do this:

In such sense, either "true" or "false" will be printed to the standard output.

there is nothing wrong with line 4. it is comparing two values.
null == o, it will return either true or false.
== is comparison operator.
 
Why is the word "abbreviation" so long? And this ad is so short?
