Given:
1. class Voop {
2. public static void main(String [] args) {
3. doStuff(1);
4. doStuff(1,2);
5. }
6. // insert code here
7. }
Which, inserted independently at line 6, will compile? (Choose all that apply.)
A. static void doStuff(int... doArgs) { }
B. static void doStuff(int[] doArgs) { }
C. static void doStuff(int doArgs...) { }
D. static void doStuff(int... doArgs, int y) { }
E. static void doStuff(int x, int... doArgs) { }
Answer:
-> A and E use valid var-args syntax.
-> B and C are invalid var-arg syntax, and D is invalid because the var-arg must be the last of a method's arguments.(Objective 1.4)
MY QUESTION IS WHY "B" IS A WRONG OPTION???THIS QUERY IS FROM SCJP BOOK-CHAPTER 1

Hi Abhishek,

static void doStuff(int[] doArgs) { } expects the values passed as that of
int array(Remember its an Object).
Hence when you pass doStuff(1) and doStuff(1,2), it doesnt get called.
But,

will work fine
