Mock Question #19, Chapter 4.

The results page says the answers are A and G.

But answer G doesn't compile !

G. public class Bird { void Bird() { }

The closing bracket is missing at the end.
So answers should be only answer A. (A. public class Bird { }).

Welcome to the Ranch!

You are right

This is a typo. It is already known and reported here.

Indeed, I had this link before my eyes but I haven't seen it was already reported since I've been looking for "#19" instead of "19" in my browser (Ctrl-F)...

Please rename it from "In the choice G of mock question 19, the closing } is missing." to "In the choice G of mock question #19, the closing } is missing.".

Hi Saad Benbouzid,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

Saad Benbouzid wrote:Please rename it from "In the choice G of mock question 19, the closing } is missing." to "In the choice G of mock question #19, the closing } is missing.".

To be consistent with other errata items in the overview and to make it more obvious for the reader, it should be updated to something like this: #19 - In the choice G, the closing } is missing. Give yourself if you got the answer right except for leaving out G.

Kind regards,
Roel

Sure. Updated.

Roel: I don't consistently start with that format. In fact, the row right about this one doesn't. I'd also like to establish that I don't have any consistent "style guide" for that web page.

Yeah, I noticed that as well My previous post just suggested (reading between the lines): it would be nice if all errata items about chapter mock questions used this consistent style
