in Lesson No 7 and for the question no 16 i have a doubt

question was ...

Given a method declared as:

public static <E extends Number> List<? super E> process(List<E> nums)
A programmer wants to use this method like this:

// INSERT DECLARATIONS HERE
output = process(input);
Which pairs of declarations could be placed at // INSERT DECLARATIONS HERE to allow
the code to compile? (Choose all that apply.)

A. ArrayList<Integer> input = null;
ArrayList<Integer> output = null;

B. ArrayList<Integer> input = null;
List<Integer> output = null;

C. ArrayList<Integer> input = null;
List<Number> output = null;

D. List<Number> input = null;
ArrayList<Integer> output = null;

E. List<Number> input = null;
List<Number> output = null;

F. List<Integer> input = null;
List<Integer> output = null;

G. None of the above.

Answer:
