Hi,

On page 554 question 6, is it really correct to say "Line 7 creates the Hello class with the generic type Object since no type is specified"? I ask this because the compiler can infer that the type T is String because of the parameter passed to the constructor.

Thanks,
Guillaume

Guillaume,
You're right. It's not. All three of these compile. Some with warnings, but they still compile.
