14. Which of the following statements about var are true? (Choose all that apply.)
A. A var can be used as a constructor parameter.
B. The type of var is known at compile time.
C. A var cannot be used as an instance variable.
D. A var can be used in a multiple variable assignment statement.
E. The value of var cannot change at runtime.
F. The type of var cannot change at runtime.
G. The word var is a reserved word in Java

In light of the "Do you think this is legal?" "Examples with var" very tricky section on page 57 (that I would post, but I think its overkill for this question), would it be more precise/unambiguous to specify "The type of var" in place of var in A & C above since var identifiers can be used?  Although, I answered it correctly, without knowing how many correct answers there are, I thought it was yet another trick (although appreciated) question:
