This question has already been asked by someone but answer is not clear.

In both cases, entry will be uncataloged. Then what is the difference b/w them?
In case of noempty, oldest version will be uncataloged and in case of noscratch, entry will be uncataloged (but which one?..oldest one) when noscratch/scratch will come into effect?
How Empty/noempty depends on scratch/noscratch or vice-versa…?

NOEMPTY and NOSCRATCH - lowest generation will be uncataloged but not deleted.

NOEMPTY and SCRATCH - lowest generation will be uncataloged AND deleted.

For generic questions, when things are not clear it is always better to read the manuals.
