Hi friends,

the following question comes from K&B SCJP 1.4 book on Chapter 2. I am confused about "protected class" term. Can protected modifier be used for classes? if so what is the reason?

Question No 2 :
Given a method in a protected class, what access modifier do you use to restrict access to
that method to only the other members of the same class?
A. final
B. static
C. private
D. protected
E. volatile
F. default access

Well, it is possible if it is an inner class.

C.Private

I thought Classes use default and public,
Members can use all four, public private, protected and default.

I'm not sure if it was captured in the errata and republished, but my copy of K&B states "Given a method in a public class, what access modifier..."
