Q1. Scala bytecode can run on top of Java VM. What is the fundamental difference between Java object.clone() and Scala object.copy()?

  •  One is a Java object, the other is a Scala object.
  •  clone() will copy class structures but not the data, while copy() will also copy data into new objects.
  •  There is no difference.
  •  copy() allows you to change values during the copying process; clone() does not.

Q2. What value does this code return?

val m1 = Map("a"->1,"b"->2,"c"->3)
  •  a
  •  2
  •  b
  •  1

Q3. What is one way to avoid low-level parallelization details?

  •  ArgumentExceptions
  •  AssertionException
  •  DiagrammedAssertions
  •  JUnit

Q5. What data type would you use to store an immutable collection of objects that contain a fixed number of varying types?

  •  Array
  •  ImmutableCollection
  •  List
  •  Tuple

Q6. After defining a function in the interpreter, Scala returns the following. What does the () indicate?

myfnc: ()Unit
  •  The function has no side effects.
  •  The function takes no parameters.
  •  The function returns no value.
  •  Returning unit types to the function is a closures.

Q7. What type of number is 1234.e5?

  •  hexadecimal

  •  List[(String, String)]
  •  List[(Array, Array)]
  •  List[(Collection, Collection)]
  •  List

Q9. What type of object does this code create?

val x = (1234, "Active")

Q10. Which is a subclass of all classes?

  •  AnyVal
  •  AnyRef
  •  Method
  •  Null

Null in Scala Standard library. The question is a bit incorrect - Null is a subtype of every type except those of value classes

Q11. For the for-yield construct, is the scope separate between for-body and yield-body?

  •  Yes and no. It is different depending on the for construct and what it does.
  •  Yes, because the for section does not expose its scope.
  •  No, because for-yield shares the same scope, even though they are within separate curly braces.
  •  Yes, because they are within different curly braces.

Example: yield-body has access to the e variable from the for-body

val a = Array(1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
for {
     e <- a if e > 2
} yield e

Q18. You have created an array using val. Can you change the value of any element of the array—and why or why not?

  •  The 0th element is immutable and cannot be modified. All other elements can be modified.
  •  Yes, val does not make arrays immutable.
  •  No, val makes the array and values of the array immutable.

a1{1} = 3 // OK
a1 = Array(1, 3, 3) // error: reassignment to val
