    Which statement is true about assertions in the Java programming language?

    1. Assertion expressions should not contain side effects.

    2. Assertion expression values can be any primitive type.

    3. Assertions should be used for enforcing preconditions on public methods.

    4. An AssertionError thrown as a result of a failed assertion should always be handled by the enclosing method.

    Which statement is true?

    1. Calling Runtime.gc() will cause eligible objects to be garbage collected.

    2. The garbage collector uses a mark and sweep algorithm.

    3. If an object can be accessed from a live thread, it can't be garbage collected.

    4. If object 1 refers to object 2, then object 2 can't be garbage collected.

    Answer

    Which statement is true?

    1. A static method cannot be synchronized.

    2. If a class has synchronized code, multiple threads can still access the nonsynchronized code.

    3. Variables can be protected from concurrent access problems by marking them with the synchronized keyword.

    4. When a thread sleeps, it releases its locks.
