One of the questions that was asked:

1) What is the maximum and recommended size of DFHCOMMAREA? And Why?

I answered that the maximum size was 64K and the recommended size by IBM was 24K. I could not answer the 'why' part.

You obviously don't learn from experience -- since you have now been told, multiple times, that the maximum size is not 64K and yet you continue to answer interview questions with the WRONG ANSWER! You should go over to Beginners and Students Forum since it would be much more suited for someone such as yourself.

Unfortunately, there are a bunch of stubborn people who completely believe that asking the same question over and over will cause the answer to change. . .

Interestingly, long ago, i read a quote (Einstein) that said one definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. . .

If you are not satisfied with the experts answers, you can always use Acrobat tools to modify the IBM's PDF documents.
It won't change the facts, but you will be able to say "According to my documentation, DFHCOMMAREA can be 64K..."
