I think answer E is not really correct because Java only puts String constants into the String pool and Strings that are newly created from methods are no constants. The answer is only insofar correct as all Strings are objects and therefore put into the heap memory of which you can make a snapshot.

Please explain more; some of us don't have that book. Is it the book by Boyarsky and Selikoff? If so, there are two study guide books, an dyou can find their websites with errata, here or here.

You are correct. I've made a note to update this in our Java 11 version of the book (which we expect to come out in 2019)
