        MyBean sc2 = new MyBean("Test1", "Test2");
        in = new ObjectInputStream(fis);

class MyBean implements Serializable {
    private final String a;
    private transient String b;
    public MyBean(String aa, String bb) {
        a = "Merit Campus: " + aa;
        b = "Program: " + bb;

User comments below. All of them might not be correct.

Ans is F. File not found exception arises and if a file is created then EOFException arises since there is a null stream in ObjectInputStream

Answer is F RunTime Error arises because abc.txt file is not found during runtime execution.

Answer is F. FileInputStream throws FileNotFoundException if it cannot find the file specified, when trying open a connection to the file, which is the case here. If abc.txt does exist and is empty, then ObjectInputStream throws EOFException because there is nothing to read. If abc.txt doesn't contain properly serialized data, then ObjectInputStream throws StreamCorruptedException. [If MyBean was previously written (serialized) to the file using ObjectOutputStream, then deserializing it using ObjectInputStream and  corresponding methods would output <<Merit Campus: Test1 null>> (b would have the default value null since transient variables are not serializable)]
