Correct Answer

Explanation

A variable can dynamically bind to

different type values during program execution
a temporary type value
a memory cell

Explanation

Static Binding vs Dynamic Binding

When the type of a variable is bound, the name of the variable can be thought of being bound to a type, in the sense that the type and name of a variable are simultaneously bound. However, when a variable’s type is bound, its name can be thought of as being only temporarily bound to a type. In reality, the names of variables are never bound to types. Names can be bound to variables and variables can be bound to types.

Correct Answer

Explanation

Languages in which types are dynamically bound are dramatically different from those in which types are statically bound

The primary advantage of static binding of variables to types is that it provides more programming flexibility.

Explanation

Dramatic shift to languages that use dynamic type binding

Before the mid-1990s, the most commonly used programming languages used static type binding, the primary exceptions being some functional languages such as LISP. However, since then there has been a significant shift to languages that use dynamic type binding. In Python, Ruby, JavaScript, and PHP, type binding is dynamic.

There are two main disadvantages to dynamic type binding

It causes programs to be less reliable
Cost of implementing dynamic attribute binding is considerable

Correct Answer

Explanation

Will JavaScript detect the keying error in the following example?

suppose that in a particular JavaScript program, i and x are currently the names of scalar numeric variables and y is currently the name of an array. Furthermore, suppose that the program needs the assignment statement

i = x;

but because of a keying error, it has the assignment statement

i = y;

Explanation

Assignment validation in static type binding

In languages that use static type binding such as C, C++ and Fortran, it happens in many cases that that type of the RHS is automatically converted to the type of the LHS of an assignment statement.
