    1. a

    < hi > is not supported. The Java language supports three kinds of comments:

    /* hi */

    /** hi */

    // hi

    2. a, b

    In flowchart symbols, a parallelogram represents input or output; a rectangle represents a process; an oval represents a start or end point; an arrow is a connector which shows relationships between the representative shapes.

    3. c

    The command ro run the Java compiler javac.exe is:

    C:\mywork> javac myfirst.java

    After compilation, you should see nothing but the next system prompt.

    4. b

    Bytecode, also known as p-code (portable code), is a form of instruction set designed for efficient execution by a software interpreter. It is not an example of algorithm. Unlike human-readable source code, bytecodes are compact numeric codes, constants, and references (normally numeric addresses) which encode the result of parsing and semantic analysis of things like type, scope, and nesting depths of program objects.

    5. b

    The four integer types ‘byte’, ‘long’, ‘int’, ‘short’ have widths of 8-bit, 64-bit, 32-bit, and 16-bit correspondingly. Thus the ‘long’ integer type of 64-bit consumes the most amount of memory.
