The same answer was written twice in a question, on page 96 (Java OCA 8 Programmer I Study Guide)

Hi,
On page 96, Chapter 2, the 8th question, the answers C and E are the same:

C. false, 20, true
E. false, 20, true

Is it possible in a real exam?

I assume one of both answer will probably be true, 20, true (because that one is missing from the list).

It's of course possible on the real exam, because humans make mistakes But it's very unlikely. I took 5 certification exams until this moment and I never noticed a duplicate answer.

And if you would encounter a duplicate answer, it can only be an issue if it is (one of) the correct answer. E.g. if you have to select just 1 correct answer, you'll have to select a radio button; so you can select just one radio button but you have 2 correct answers. Uh-oh! But as I said before: very, verry unlikely to happen on the real exam.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

Not a duplicate answer, but on the last certification exam I took (OCA7), I noticed 2 (minor) slip-ups in 2 questions. So I contacted the OCP team to let them know so they can improve these questions.

Noted the error. For this question, consider it a clue that C and E are both wrong .

On the real exam, I took the beta where we are given the opportunity to comment in the exam itself. I did notice some errors (but not duplicate answers) and commented on them. Oracle is likely to notice such an issue when grading the exam from the answer distribution if two answers are correct. And fix it before the real exam.
