Optional 'thank-you' note:
Given:
1. public class Foo {
2. private int val;
3. public foo(int v) (val = v }
4. public static void main (String [] args) {
5. Foo a = new Foo (10);
6. Foo b = new Foo (10);
7. Foo c = a;
8. int d = 10;
9. double e = 10.0;
10. }
11. }
Which three logical expressions evaluate to true? (Choose Three)
A. (a ==c)
B. (d ==e)
C. (b ==d)
D. (a ==b)
E. (b ==c)
F. (d ==10.0)
Ans: A,B,F

Doubt How B is correct, as it involves a double value? Also does it takes only the non-fractional part for comparison?

pls help
regards,

No... when a int is compared with a double, the int is cast to a double for the comparison. Since, a value of 10, cast to a value of 10.0 without any lost of precision, the comparison is 10.0 to 10.0, which should be equal.

Thanks,
Henry

when you compare numeric values internally it will promotes lower to higher version.
0==0.0
in this case 0 is converted into double as 0.0
then the compiler will perform comaprision.
