Quiz 1: Creating worker objects

What happens when the following program is compiled and run?

class Worker {

	int age;
	double wage;

	Worker(String name, int age, double wage) { = name;
		this.age = age;
	public static void main(String[] args){
		Worker mc = new Worker("Peter",25,235.0);
		Worker mc2 = new Worker("Alan",64,434.0);
		Worker mc3 = new Worker("Emily",36,320.0);
		System.out.print(mc3.age + ", " + mc2.wage + ", " +;

Select the correct answer.

Quiz 2: Object instantiation

What happens when the following program is compiled and run?

    int n = 3;
    String s = "b";

    MyClass(int m, int n, String s) {
        this.n = n;
        this.s = s;
    void method(int m, int n, String s) {
        this.m = m;
        this.n = n;
        this.s = s;
    public static void main(String[] args) {

  1. mc2’s wage is definitely not 0.0… isn’t d correct for the first question?

    1. The correct answer is actually b. There is a trick here! The statement this.wage = wage; is missing inside the constructor. That means the value of the parameter is never assigned to the instance variable wage. unlike the values of the variables name and age.
