I have this term from one of IBM tests and I could not find any reference to it in literature.

Could you possibly let us know the entire question... just the word 'passivation' could lead us up the wrong trail!

Stara,
This leaves me stumped... I would have gone for B and C as the answers. The passivation class seems a typical IBM question where the language gets a bit muddled.
I just hope they are not referring the passivated object that is written to secondary storage. Even if that was the case, as programmers, we would have no control over that anyway!
Another strange thing.. I note that there was another question.. similar.. IBM 483 or something like that.. similar query.. was posted in JavaRanch in the past. The question is the same.. the answers had only 4 choices.. (E). Componnent Interface was not one of the choices.. and you had to pick 2 right answers...
sorry.. I am unable to help anymore.. I am confused now as well.. (of IBM Certification English Language!)
Please do post your findings if you get to the bottom og this.
Thanks.
