This is the kind of exercise that is much easier to solve with a drawing.

The key is to remember that finalize may be call or not. So we are looking for a beginning of 4 printings with several possible endings (all combinations of 0 or 1 of each A1, A2 and A3).

The beginning of the output is well defined. a0 = a0.other() makes a0 point A1 and returns A1, which toString() method is invoked. Then the same A2, A3 and A1 again.

So every answer with a beginning A1A2A3A1 is valid if the end contains no more than one of A1, A2 or A3 in any order.

Does it make sense?

This is correct(IMHO), but according to Whizlab it isn't. There's some other problems with Whizlab also regarding exceptions. There was two possible answers, but only one was correct (copied code to compiler and tested numerous times. Drag'n'Drop question)
