Test: Computer Science

Consider the code below:

String[] db = {"Harvey","Plutarch","Frege","Radulphus"};

ArrayList<String> names = new ArrayList<String>();

for(int i = 0; i < 12; i++) {

        names.add(db[i % db.length]);

for(int i = 0; i < 12; i++) {

        if(names.get(i).equals("Frege")) {





What is the bug in the code above?

The list will overrun its indices in the second loop.

There are no bugs.

The list will use up all of the memory on the machine.

There is an infinite loop in one of the two loops.

The .get method is buggy and likely to crash.  It is better to use an Iterator.
