Answer explanation

  1. The statement should reassign the variable i of the object mc.
  2. The same statement should reassign the value of the variable i and the object str of the object mc2.
  3. To do that we need to use the method myMethod. We can use the method to reassign the value of the variable i and the value of the object str of the object mc2.
  4. To reassign the value of the variable i of the object mc, we can simply reassign its value to the vlaue that the method myMethod returns as follows.
    mc.i = mc2.myMethod(3, “x”);
