ans we have output,Output1 -2 classes, output instance object is created in main method,by using that reference we called string(),it invokes default constructor,here we created object for Output1,t.x prints 42."." operator is used to access output1 class variable x( instance variable), thn we called fix() function and value t is passed as an return type is output 1,coming to the fix function definition, value of tt which is t added by 42,so 42+42 is 84,nw object t value is 84,bcz we uses assignment operation.return statement returns 84.sop print 84 84

ANS IS B 42 84 84

Here the concept of passing object reference i.e. PASS BY ADDRESS is used.

--First of all object of class output is created and string method is called usind that object.

--In string method object of class output 1 is created as class output 1 contains byte variable x with value 42,object of output 1 is used to display value of X. So 42 will get printed.

--After that another object of output 1 is created and fix method() is called by passing previously created object of class output 1 which holds x=42. It is incremented by 42 I.e. X=84 .Now this method returns the object to t2 object. As object reference is passed not the variable so values are changed permanently as here concept of PASS BY ADDRESS is used.

--Now object T1 and t2 will be holding 84 for value of X. They are printed using println() statement.
