Select the correct answer.


Answer explanation

  1. The constructor of the superclass invokes the method myMethod, which is overridden
    in the subclass MySub.
  2. The statement System.out.print(“y” + b); in the method myMethod of
    the subclass writes the string “y” and the value of the variable b
    to the standard output.
  3. The constructor of the superclass invokes the method myMethod, which is overridden in the subclass and the method tries to access the varaible b inside the subclass before it is initialized. Therefore the program writes y0 instead of y3
    to the standard output.

The correct answer is: d.
