Q.1) Which of the following is the most ^aEURoeresource hungry ^aEURoepart of
dealing with activities on android?
ANSWER : Opening a new app
SOLUTION :
opening a new app is the most resource hungry part of dealing with activities on
android.
Q.2) How is a simulator different from an emulator?
nl
in
A. Emulator are only used to play old SNES games , simulators are used for software
development.
B. The emulator is shipped with the android SDK and third party simulators are not.
C. The emulator can virtualize sensors and other hardware features, while the simulator
cannot
D. The emulator imitates the machine executing the binary code, rather than simulating
the behavior of the code at a higher level.

ANSWER : The emulator imitates the machine executing the binary code, rather than
simulating the behavior of the code at a higher level.
SOLUTION :
1. Simulation is the use of modeling to create a controllable, representative stand in for
a complex system. Simulations are, by definition, always incomplete.
2. Emulation is the replacement of a real world device with an model at a well defined
interface for the purposes of allowing controlled responses from the emulated real world
device. The emulation is "complete" if all the interfaces are present, and the resulting
observed behavior matches that of the real world device.
Q.3) What is an activity?
w
w
A. A single screen the user sees on the device at one time.
B. A message sent among the major building blocks
C. A component that runs in the background without any interface.
D. Context referring to the application environment.
ANSWER : A single screen the user sees on the device at one time.
SOLUTION :
An Activity is an application component that provides a screen with which users can
interact in order to do something, such as dial the phone, take a photo, send an email,
or view a map.
Q.4) Application context are independent of the activity life cycle.
A. True
B. False
C. NA
D. NA
ANSWER : True
SOLUTION :
An application context gets created whenever the first component of this application
starts up,regardless of whether that component is an activity,a service,or something
else.The application context lives as long as your application is alive.As such it is
independent of activity life cycle.So as long as any of the activities,services,providers,or
receivers are alive,your application context is around to hold them.Once the activity
manager terminates alloy her building blocks of your app,it also gets rid of the

m
A. True
B. False
C. NA
D. NA
ANSWER : False
SOLUTION :
A Service is an application component that can perform long-running operations in the
background and does not provide a user interface.
Q.6) The xml file that contains all the text that your application uses.
nl
in
A. Stack.xml
B. Text.xml
C. Strings.xml
D. String.java
w

p
tio
ANSWER : Strings.xml
SOLUTION :
A string resource provides text strings for your application with optional text styling and
formatting. There are three types of resources that can provide your application with
strings:
1.String-XML resource that provides a single string.
2.String Array-XML resource that provides an array of strings.
3.Quantity Strings (Plurals)-XML resource that carries different strings for pluralization.
All strings are capable of applying some styling markup and formatting arguments. For
information about styling and formatting strings, see the section about Formatting and
Styling.
Q.7) An activity can be thought of as corresponding to what?
w
w
A. A java project.
B. A java class
C. A method call
D. An object field
ANSWER : A java class
SOLUTION :
An activity can be thought of as corresponding to java class. An Activity is an application
component that provides a screen with which users can interact in order to do
something, such as dial the phone, take a photo, send an email, or view a map. Each
activity is given a window in which to draw its user interface. The window typically fills
the screen, but may be smaller than the screen and float on top of other windows.
Q.8) To create an emulator , you need an AVD .What does it stands for?
A. Android virtual display.
B. Android virtual device
C. Active virtual device
D. Application virtual display.
ANSWER : Android virtual device
SOLUTION :
An Android Virtual Device (AVD) is an emulator configuration that lets you model an
actual device by defining hardware and software options to be emulated by the Android
Emulator. The easiest way to create an AVD is to use the graphical AVD Manager,
which you launch from Eclipse by clicking Window > AVD Manager. You can also start
the AVD Manager from the command line by calling the android tool with the avd

Q.15) The emulated device for android .
in
A. Runs the same code base as the actual device, all the way down to the machine
layer.
B. Is more of a simulator , and acts as a virtual machine for the android device.
C. Runs the same code base as the actual device, however at a higher level.

ANSWER : Runs the same code base as the actual device, all the way down to the
machine layer.
SOLUTION :
The emulator lets you develop and test Android applications without using a physical
device.
The Android emulator is an application that provides a virtual mobile device on which
you can run your Android applications. It runs a full Android system stack, down to the
kernel level, that includes a set of preinstalled applications (such as the dialer) that you
can access from your applications. You can choose what version of the Android system
you want to run in the emulator by configuring AVDs, and you can also customize the
mobile device skin and key mappings. When launching the emulator and at runtime, you
can use a variety of commands and options to control its behavior.

Q.16) The R file is a/an __________ generated file.
w
A. Automatically
B. Manually
C. Emulated
D. None of the above.
ANSWER : Automatically
SOLUTION :
The R file is an Automatically generated file. android.R.java is not just where XML ids
are stored. It also contains access to resources - such as drawables, layouts, strings,
arrays, and basically anything you can declare in resources. Personally I find that it is
useful when using Eclipse. I can simply type findViewById(R.id. and Eclipse will show a
tooltip with a list of options to choose from.
Q.17) What are intents?
A. Intents are messages that are sent among major building blocks.
B. Intent trigger activities to being , services to start or stop, or broadcast.
C. Intents are asynchronous
D. All of these.
ANSWER : All of these.
SOLUTION :
An intent is an abstract description of an operation to be performed. It can be used with
startActivity to launch an Activity, broadcastIntent to send it to any interested
BroadcastReceiver components, and startService(Intent) or bindService(Intent,

ServiceConnection, int) to communicate with a background Service.
An Intent provides a facility for performing late runtime binding between the code in
different applications. Its most significant use is in the launching of activities, where it
can be thought of as the glue between activities. It is basically a passive data structure
holding an abstract description of an action to be performed.

ANSWER : Orientations and layouts that specify what the display look like.
SOLUTION :
An Android layout is a class that handles arranging the way its children appear on the
screen. Anything that is a View (or inherits from View) can be a child of a layout. All of
the layouts inherit from ViewGroup (which inherits from View) so you can nest layouts.
You could also create your own custom layout by making a class that inherits from
ViewGroup.
The standard Layouts are:
1.AbsoluteLayout
2.FrameLayout
3.LinearLayout
4.RelativeLayout
5.TableLayout
Q.20) In an implicit intent, the sender specifies the type of receiver.
A. True
B. False
C. NA
D. NA
ANSWER : True
SOLUTION :
Implicit intents do not name a specific component, but instead declare a general action
to perform, which allows a component from another app to handle it. For example, if you
want to show the user a location on a map, you can use an implicit intent to request that
another capable app show a specified location on a map.
Q.21) The android software development kit (SDK) is all you need to develop
applications for android.
A. True
B. False
C. NA
D. NA

ANSWER : False
SOLUTION :
The fact that an activity is in a running state doesn^aEURTMt mean it^aEURTMs doing
much. It could be just sitting there and waiting for user input. Similarly, an activity in a
stopped state is not necessarily doing nothing. The state names mostly refer to how
active the activity is with respect to user input, in other words, whether an activity is
visible, in focus, or not visible at all.
