Java Programming - Declarations and Access Control - Discussion


What is the most restrictive access modifier that will allow members of one class to have access to members of another class in the same package?

[A]. public
[B]. abstract
[C]. protected
[D]. synchronized
[E]. default access

Answer: Option E


default access is the "package oriented" access modifier.

Option A and C are wrong because public and protected are less restrictive. Option B and D are wrong because abstract and synchronized are not access modifiers.

Public - we can access anywhere.
Protected - we can access out of package.
Default - we can access in same package anywhere.

Due to this default is correct.
