Go through Java Theory Notes on Bitwise Operators before reading these objective questions.



1) What is the output of the Java program? byte b = 0b0000101; System.out.print(b + ","); b &= 0b00001111; System.out.print(b);  
A) 5, 0
B) 5,5
C) 5,15
D) None
Answer [=]
B
Explanation:

0101 & 1111 = 0101. &= is a Bitwise AND Shorthand Assignement operator.

2) What is the output of the Java program? byte b = 0b00000101; System.out.print(b + ","); b |= 0b00001111; System.out.print(b);
A) 5,0
B) 5,5
C) 5,15
D) Compiler error
Answer [=]
C
Explanation:
|= is a Bitwise OR Shorthand Assignment operator.
a |= b ---> a = a|b;
3) What is the output of the Java Program? byte b = 0b00000101; System.out.print(b + ","); b ^= 0b00001111; System.out.print(b);
A) 5,0
B) 5,5
C) 5,10
D) 5,15
Answer [=]
C
Explanation:
Bitwise exclusive OR produces 1 for different Inputs
and 0 for the same Inputs.
 0101
^1111
------
 1010
4) What is the output of the Java program? byte b = 0b00000101; System.out.print(b + ","); b = (byte)~b; System.out.print(b);
A) 5, 10
B) 5, -10
C) 5. -6
D) Compiler error
Answer [=]
C
Explanation:
Bitwise NOT(~) operator turns 1s to 0s
and 0s to 1s. If the leftmost bit is 1,
it is a negative number.
So take 1's complement and add 1 to it.
~0000 0101 =
 1111 1010
-----------
~ 111 1010 =
  000 0101
-----------
  000 0101
  000 0001 +
-----------
- 000 0110
5) What is the output of the Java program with Left Shift Operator (<<)? byte b = 0b00000101; System.out.print(b + ","); b = (byte)(b << 1); System.out.print(b);
A) 5,2
B) 5,5
C) 5,10
D) Compiler error
Answer [=]
C
Explanation:
Left Shift 1 bit.
Before:
0000 0101
After:
left 0 removed <-- 0 [000 0 101 0] <--- 0 added at right
=0000 1010
6) What is the output of Java program with Right Shift Operator (>>)? byte b = 0b00000101; System.out.print(b + ","); b = (byte)(b >> 1); System.out.print(b);
A) 5,-6
B) 5,10
C) 5, 2
D) Compiler error
Answer [=]
C
Explanation:
Right Shift Operator shifts bits rightside.
Fills 0s on the left side.
Before:
0000 0101
After
[0 0000 010]1
= 0000 0010

 
7) What is the output of the Java program with Right Shift (Without Fill Zeroes)? byte num = (byte)0b1111_1000; System.out.print(num + ","); num = (byte)(num >> 1); System.out.print(num);
A) -8, -16
B) -4, -8
C) -8, -4
D) Compiler error
Answer [=]
C
Explanation:
1111_1000 ==
~111 1000 + 1
= 000 0111 + 1
= 000 1000
= -8
-8 >> 1
= 1111_1100
= ~ 111 1100 + 1
= 000 0011 + 1
= 000 0100
= -4
8) What is the output of a Java Program with Shift Right Fill Zeroes (>>>) operator? byte num = (byte)0b1111_1000; System.out.print(num + ","); num = (byte)(num >>> 1); System.out.print(num);
A) -8, 8
B) -8, 4
C) -8, -4
D) Compiler error
Answer [=]
C
Explanation:

In this case, >> and >>> produce the same output. A negative number is a negative number only.

9) What is the output of Java Program with Shift Right Fill Zeroes operator? byte num = (byte)0b000_1000; System.out.print(num + ","); num = (byte)(num >>> 1); System.out.print(num);
A) -8, 4
B) 8, 4
C) 8, -4
D) -8, -4
Answer [=]
B
10) What is the output of the Java program? byte num = (byte)0b000_1000; if(num >> 1 > 6) { System.out.print(num); } else { System.out.println(num>>1); }
A) 8
B) 6
C) 4
D) Compiler error
Answer [=]
C
Explanation:
(num>>1)>6
4 > 6 = false
11) What is the output of the Java Program? byte num = (byte)0b000_1000; if(num >> 1 > 6 || true) { System.out.print(num); } else { System.out.println(num>>1); }
A) 8
B) 6
C) 4
D) 2
Answer [=]
A
Explanation:
Logical OR (||) is executed at last.
(4>6) || true = false||true
= true
12) What is the output of the Java program? byte num = (byte)0b000_1000; if(num >> 1 > 6 || true | 2>3) { System.out.print(num+1); } else { System.out.println(num>>2); }
A) 8
B) 6
C) 9
D) Compiler error
Answer [=]
C
Explanation:

Each logic block is evaluated separately as it has less priority.
