I just did the chapter 2 review questions online and noticed a possible error. For question 18 I chose answer B, which should be correct according to the text. But the test evaluation says that answer A is correct, which is wrong.

I also attached 2 screenshots outlining the behaviour.

Text says B is correct but evaluated answer was A.

Hi Michael Wohlfart,

First of all, a warm welcome to CodeRanch!

You are correct! The explanation is spot-on, but the listed correct answer is wrong and should (obviously) be B. It's already listed in the official errata overview (kept up-to-date by one of the authors). Because the mock questions also exist in the study guide itself, they are listed in the first section (and not in the "Online Materials" section).

Hope ot helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

Ah.. sorry for bothering you with an already known error. I only searched the online materials section in advance and couldn't find it there. Thanks for the welcome!

Michael,
I'm working with the publisher on getting these things fixed in the online materials. It'll be a few weeks longer though. This is my fault; I've been swamped finishing the manuscript for our OCP 8 book. Things calm down next week as more time will be spent in review than writing so I should be able to submit the list of what needs to be fixed.
