What will be the output of the following program?
import java.util.*;
public class BitsAre {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        BitSet bs = new BitSet();
        for (String s : new String[]{"LeaRn", "PracTice", "coMpetE"}) {
            for (int i = 0; i < s.length(); i++) {
                if (Character.isLowerCase(s.charAt(i)))

A. {1, 2, 4}
{1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7}
{0, 1, 3, 4}
B. {1, 2, 4}
{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7}
{0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7}
C. {1, 2, 4}
{1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7}
{0, 1, 3, 4, 6, 7}
D. Some other output
E. Compilation Error or Runtime Error

Ans is B..BitSet is an special type of array that can hold the Bit values and this can b increased as needed and index starts from the pstv numbers only...

Set() method which is used to set the Particular bit to 1...
Coming to the program here we create the array of Strings with 3 elements...

using for-each loop we are travelling every time we are checking if the char is lowercase than we are setting that index bit to here in the 1st string LeaRn..than 1,2,4 are lower case so it will set that locations to 1..

PracTice -- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7  are small letters so that indexes set to 1similar to otehr one also

ans b.The BitSet class implements a set of bits. The set grows in size as needed. Each element of a BitSet has
a boolean value. When a BitSet object is created, all of the bits are set to false by default. The bits in a
BitSet are indexed by nonnegative integers, starting at 0. The size of a BitSet is the number of bits that
it currently contains. The BitSet class provides methods to set, clear, and retrieve the values of the
individual bits in a BitSet.  constructor creates a BitSet with a default size of 64 bits. All of the bits in the BitSet are
initially set to false.                                                                                            coming to this program string array initialized with 3 strings,                                         nested for loop concept used here.                                                                            s="LeaRn" inner for loop checks each char from string thn if condition chcks lowercase or not,if char is lowercase then thn bit value is set to true.                   set()-This method sets the bit at the given index to true. If bit is greater than or equal to the number of
bits in the BitSet, the size of the BitSet is increased so that it contains bit 1,2,4th bits set to true.    sop prints 1,2,4                                                                           s="PracTice" here 1,2,3,5,6,7 bits are set to bitset ve following true bits 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 so nw sop prints 1,2,3,4,5,6,7.                                                            s="coMpetE" from this string 0,1,3,4,5 bits are true.bitset ve following true bits 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7 thn sop get printd
