ICSE Class X Computer Applications ( Java ) Solved Model Question Papers

ICSE Class X Computer Applications ( Java ) Solved Question Papers

ICSE Class X solved model paper for 2018

Model Paper Solved
Section A (40 Marks)
Attempt all question

Question 1.
a.       Define Encapsulation.
Ans: The wrapping of data and function together into a single unit is called Encapsulation.
b.      Name any two OOP’s principles
Ans: Inheritance and Polymorphism
c.       Define Object with an example.
Ans:  Object: An instance of a class called Object. The table is an instance of class Furniture.
Class: Blue print of an object is called Class. Example, mango, apple, and orange are members of the class fruit.
d.      What is wrapper class? Give example.
e.      A wrapper class is a class which wraps a primitive data type. Example Double, Float, Integer

Question 2.
a.       What is a class variable?
Ans: Instance variables having the keyword static before it is a class variable. For every object, there is just one copy of the variable made.
b.      What is the significance of import* in your program?
Ans: The line imports all the classes of the package into the current program.
c.       State the two kinds of data types.
Ans: The two kinds of data types in Java are primitive and reference data types.
d.      Define impure function.
Ans: Impure Function: A function that brings about a change in the argument that it receives. Its arguments will always be reference types. It may or may not return value. In other words, an impure function brings about a change in the state of the function. This change in state is called the side effect of calling an impure function.
Static void count(Number num) 
e.      What are comments? Name the different types.
Ans: Comments are statements which enhance the readability and understanding of the program. They are not part of the program.
The different types are: single line (//….), multiple line (/* … */) and documenting comment (/**….*/).

Question 3.
a.       What is meant by the private visibility of a method?
Ans:  The visibility of private method restricted to the class itself. It is not visible to anywhere outside the class.
b.      What is a variable?
Ans: A variable is a named memory location whose value can change. Example int a,b;
c.       What is the use of return keyword?
Ans: A return keyword is used to return any value from a function. It denotes the end of a function.
d.      What is call by value?
Ans: In call by value arguments are passed by the value, which means that a copy of the arguments is passed to the method can make changes to the value of this copy but can not change the values of the original variables in the calling method.
e.      What is meant by an infinite loop? Give an example.
Ans: An infinite loop is a loop whose test condition is always true. This type of loop never ends by itself. For example:
f.        State any two objectives of using Arrays.
Ans:  1. Use hold elements in contiguous memory location. 2. Arrays are used to group storage locations.

Question  4.
Design a program in Java to calculate the tax for the people living in Mango city. Specify a class taxpayer whose class description is given below:                                                                                                                                                                                    [15]
Class name:                                         TaxCalculator
Data members:                                    int PAN
                                                                String name
                                                                double  taxableIncome
                                                                double  tax
Member methods:                               inputData()
The tax is calculated according to the following rules:
Total Annual Taxable Income
Rate of Taxation
Up to 60000
Above 60000 but up to 150000
Above 150000 but up to 500000
Above 500000

 * class TaxCalculator here.
public class TaxCalculator
       int pan;
       String name;
       double taxableIncome;
       double tax;
       void input()throws IOException
              InputStreamReader in=new InputStreamReader(;
              BufferedReader br=new BufferedReader(in);
              System.out.println("Enter name and taxable income:");
      void computeData()
               else if(taxableIncome>60000 && taxableIncome<=150000)
               else if(taxableIncome>150000 && taxableIncome<=500000)
      void displayData()
        System.out.println("Display Data”);
        System.out.println("Name =" + name);
        System.out.println("Taxable Income =" + taxableIncome);
        System.out.println("Tax Paid =" + tax);
    public static void main(String args[])throws IOException

java program for spy number

java program for spy number

Spy Number program

Write a program to accept a number and check and display whether it is a Spy Number or not.
A Number is spy number if the sum of its digits equals the product of its digits.
 Example : consider the number 1124
 Sum of the digits = 1 + 1 + 2 + 4
 Product of the digits = 1 * 1 * 2 * 4

// ICSE 2017 Question Answer

import java.util.*;
public class SpyNumber
    public static void main(String args[])
        int no, pro, sum, digit;
        pro = 1;
        sum = 0;
        Scanner sc = new Scanner(;
        System.out.println("Enter a number to check spy number :");
        no = sc.nextInt();
        while(no != 0)
            digit = no % 10;
            pro = pro * digit;
            sum = sum + digit;
            no = no / 10;
        if(sum == pro)
            System.out.println("Spy Number");
            System.out.println("Not Spy Number");

Enter a number to check spy number:
Spy Number
Enter a number to check spy number:
Not Spy Number

Java Program for BinarySearch

Java Program for BinarySearch

Java Program for Binary Search

From Wikipedia
In computer science, binary search, also known as half-interval search, logarithmic search, or binary chop, is a search algorithm that finds the position of a target value within a sorted array. Binary search compares the target value to the middle element of the array; if they are unequal, the half in which the target cannot lie is eliminated and the search continues for the remaining half until it is successful or the remaining half is empty.
This search method uses low and high positions and matches with the middle element. The array must be in sorted order and low and high positions are changed in order to search the given data(mid = (low + high) / 2. If the given value is less than mid value then high = mid - 1. If the value is greater then mid value then low = mid + 1 and if the given value is equal to the mid value then the search result found and printed.
The time complexity of above algorithm is O(n).   

Java Program

import java.util.*;
public class BinarySearch
    public static void main(String arg[])
        int n[]={1,4,6,7,8,9,10,11,14,15,16};
        int low,high,mid,p=0,l,i,m;
        Scanner sc=new Scanner(;
        System.out.println("Enter number to search:");
            else if(m>n[mid])
            else if(m==n[mid])
                System.out.println(m+" is located at "+mid+1);

Wrapper class in Java

java wrapper class
Wrapper class in Java
According to Wikipedia “In object-oriented programming, a wrapper class is a class that encapsulates types, so that those types can be used to create object instances and methods in another class that needs those types. So a primitive wrapper class is a wrapper class that encapsulates hides or wraps data types from the eight primitive data so that these can be used to create instantiated objects with methods in another class or in other classes. The primitive wrapper classes are found in the Java API.”

It is a process by which we can convert primitive data type into object types.  Every primitive data type has its own wrapper class.
Primitive Type
Wrapper class

All the wrapper class is the sub classes of the abstract number class.

Java data types are primitive by default and sometimes we require to represent as an object so we need to wrap the primitive data type in a class.
class WrapperClassExample
    public static void main(String[] args)
        String a = "20";
        String b = "30";
        int f1, f2, result;
        System.out.println("Sum before:"+ a + b); // print 2030 not 50
        f1 = Integer.parseInt(a); // convert String to int type
        f2 = Integer.parseInt(b); // convert String to int type
        result = f1 + f2;
        System.out.println("sum after: " + result); // 50
Sample output
Sum before:2030
sum after: 50

In this program we try to add a and b it will give 2030 not 50 because “20” and “30” are not integer type. So if need to sum it up then we need to convert String to int type.
