I am a bit confused about how Java interprets numbers in binary forms. For example, 99 is 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0110 0011
. But -99 is 1111 1111 1111 1111 1111 1111 1001 1101? Why isn't -99 1000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0110 0011?

public class Static{

int x=5;

Does x work the same as a static variable?

can we create a static variable inside a method?

abstract interface Blah {} legal?

Are varibles inside a static method initiated or not initiated like in regular non-static methods?

which 2 are legal methods to override "public void methodA(int i) throws AssertionError

answer is "public void methodA(int i)" and "public void methodA(int i) throws Error" I thought an overriding method can throw a more specific but not a more general exception. Since AssertionError is clearly a subclass of Error, why can an overriding method throw an Error?

Why don't try it? You will learn much more if you try it instead of simply reading the answer.

Question 6

Hint. There is a difference between checked and unchecked exceptions.

Question 2:
No x will not work as static variable, It will behave as a local variable and its scope is limited to the static block and will not be available outside the block.

Question 3: No we cannot create static variables inside a method. Only local variables or final local variables can be declared inside a method. Static variables are class variables.

Question 4: abstract is a added implictly to every interface declaration by the compiler. So whether you declare interface as abstract or not its implicitly declared as abstract.

Question 5: Am not clear what you are trying to ask.

As Manfred said all these are simple question which can be followed by reading any good java book or by just checking which will help you in understanding concepts better, Just an advice .
