What will be the output of the following program?
public class PriorityDemo {
    Priority t1, t2, t3;
    public PriorityDemo() {
        t1 = new Priority();;
        t2 = new Priority();;
        t3 = new Priority();
    public static void main(String args[]) {
        new PriorityDemo();
class Priority extends Thread implements Runnable {
    int sleep;
    static int prio = 3;
    public Priority() {
        sleep += 100;
    public void run() {
        try {
            System.out.print(getName() + " Priority = " + getPriority() + ", ");
        } catch (InterruptedException e) {

A. t1 Priority = 3, t2 Priority = 4, t3 Priority = 5, 
B. Thread-0 Priority = 4, Thread-1 Priority = 4, Thread-2 Priority = 4,
C. Thread-0 Priority = 4, Thread-1 Priority = 5, Thread-2 Priority = 6,
D. Output can not be determined
E. Compilation Error or Runtime Error

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

ans is,, methods are called in priorityDemo class constructor, so they will be executed as functions instead of seperate the output is sequential and the default names given to threads t1,t2,t3 are Thread-0,Thread-1,Thread-2

c is the answer since 3 threads run in sequence and after the sleep duration is over the respective prio value is through getPrio method is printed

Ans is E.. becoz getname and getpriority are class methods so they are called using thread like thread.getName()....

ans is C bcoz we r directly running the threads for the first two cases.. after execution of constructor of priority the thread t1 runs..and only after the execution of thread t1 completes, the thread t2 is created and its run method is called...and only after that thread t3.start is called and it executes in som tym...the result may hav been different if we would have used .start in first or second or both now as threads executes in the same sequence as given... so thread 0 has priority 4 and thread 1has priority 5 and thread 2 has pririty 6 as constructors are executed in d same sequence...
