Hi, friends,
I’m just studying for the SCWCD exam. I’m using a book “Head First Servlets & JSP” second edition. I found the mock exams contained in the book very difficult, because some questions seem to be ambiguous (can be understood in more than one way).

For example, question number 3 of the final mock exam (in my book on the page 829). The question gives a fragment from a TLD that contains a tag definition. There is an attribute named “size” defined inside this fragment. They ask some questions about the tag handler that handles this tag. The “correct” answer A says: “The class should have a size member with at least a setter method.” I agree that the class should have a setter method for the “size” attribute, but I think that the “size member” is not indispensable. I think that the answer is ambiguous.
There are more examples of ambiguities in the mock exam questions.

My question is: Does the real exam also include ambiguous questions like those in the book?.

No. Questions at the exam are not ambiguous. Moreover, the number of correct answers to choose are given.
