• • Success Kit C# Questions? What is a class? Blue print of an object. It is programmer defined datatype.It can be public, private, protected. What is object? It is a specific instance of a class, we are using “new” keyword when we create an object Ex. car c=new car (); What is static member variable and methods? It means belongs to a class rather than to an object. What are the Oops features? a).Encapsulation: Hiding some features from outside world. We are using excess modified like Private, Public, and Protected. b).Pollymorphism: many forms of methods/classes. Ex. Overloaded method. Here we can assign subclass object to a super class object. c).Inheritance: It is process by which sub class inherits member variable & methods from super class. d).Abstraction: It is hiding, providing the interface to the user. Ex. Object. What Is Value Type? Just values in the memory are stored in a class, char & struct. What is Reference Type? Contain the address of the object are stored in attack. Ex. Class, interfaces, array & strings. What is constructor? ->It helps in creating an instance of a class? ->Have no return type, not even void. ->Can be private, public/procted. ->Can be overloaded. Access Modifier. Private->It access within the class. Protected->it access within the class & any subclass of that class. Public->It excess by all. Abstract Method. Abstract method is a keyword, which contain abstract method of abstract class. Abstract class:-Which contain abstract methods.

• ->abstract class can not be instantied. ->Wee using abstract keyword, when we declare a abstract class. Ex.Public abstract class car { } What is Method Overloading? It means same method name & different signature. -> They can be in the same class/different class. ->Public class Adding numbers {Public int add (int a, int b) { Return a+b; } Public int Add (int a, int b,int c) { Return a+b+c; } } What is method overriding? It means same method name & same signature. ->They can not be in the same class. ->It has to be in the subclass. ->Static method can not be overridden. ->Exception can be same or more. ->Excess modified can be same or more. ->Method overriding is done by the ‘virtual’ keyword. What is Boxing & unboxing? Boxing->When storing value type in the form of object type in the heap memory(value type into reference type) UnBoxing->When you are converting object type in the form of value type(reference type into value type). What is an Interface? An interface is just like class but not a class, which contains any abstract method & member variable, should be final/static. It is an entity that is defined by the word Interface. An interface has No implementation; it only has the signature or in other words, just the definition of the Methods without the body. As one of the similarities to abstract class, it is a contract that is Used to define hierarchies for all subclasses or it defines specific set of methods and their
