Given the following program:

1.public class MyCircle
2.{
3.public double radius;
4.public double diameter;
5.
6.public void setRadius(double radius)
7.{
8.this.radius=radius;
9.this.diameter=radius*2;
10.}
11.public double getRadius()
12.{
13.return radius;
14.}
15.}

Which statement is true?

a) MyCircle is fully encapsulated
b) The diameter is guarenteed to be twice the radius
c)Lines 8 and 9 should be in a synchronized block to ensure encapsulation
d)The radius of a Mycircle object can be set without affecting its diameter

According to the mock exam, the Answer is b.

But isnt b wrong. radius being a public variable can be modified by anyone. So how is this behaviour guaranteed. I feel d shud be the answer.. Any comments?
