32. Consider the following code sample:

class Tree{}
class Pine extends Tree{}
class Oak extends Tree{}
public class Forest
{ public static void main( String[] args )
{ Tree tree = new Pine();

if( tree instanceof Pine )
System.out.println( "Pine" );

if( tree instanceof Tree )
System.out.println( "Tree" );

if( tree instanceof Oak )
System.out.println( "Oak" );

else System.out.println( "Oops" );
}
}

Select all choices that will be printed:

a) Pine
b) Tree
c) Forest
d) Oops
e) (nothing printed)

Pine
Tree
Oops

Apply the IS-A methodology for each case.

Best of luck ...

John,

what is the actual question?

As Vassili said
The "tree" object is of type "Pine".
Pine extends Tree, thus Pine IS-A Pine itself and Pine IS-A Tree.
Pine IS-NOT-AN OAK, that's why it prints "Oops" instead of "Oak".

Good luck.
