When we invoke isAlive() on suspended thread, what will it return, true or false? I have gone through the APIdocumentation but I didn't get it

please help me

I imagine it would return true (as the thread isn't actually dead). However, you shouldn't have to deal with suspended threads for the SCJP in the first place, as suspend() and resume() are deprecated in the Java 2 platform...

isAlive() will return true at all states except when the thread is in new state or dead state
