Hi guys,

Could you please help me with the following question :

What is the difference between the rules for method-call conversion and the rules for assignment conversion?

A. There is no difference; the rules are the same.

B. Method-call conversion supports narrowing, assignment conversion does not.

C. Assignment conversion supports narrowing, method-call conversion does not.

D. Method-call conversion supports narrowing if the method declares that it throws ClassCastException.

According to the author the correct choice is A, but I chose C.

I think the rules are different when aplied to method-call conversion and simple assignment conversion.

Here is my explanation :

As per my preceeding code, it's proved that conversion rules(I mean, narrowing) are different when aplied to method-call and simple assignment sentence.

Any comments would be highly appreciated.
