class Super
{
int var=10;
void display()
{
System.out.println("Inside Super");
}
}

public class Inheritance extends Super
{
int var=19;
void display()
{
System.out.println("Inside Inheritance");
}
public static void main(String s[])
{
Super i=new Inheritance();
i.display();
System.out.println(i.var); //1
}
}

At the line 1 while i am printing variable "i " it is printing Super class "i" . can you please clarify my doubts.

Thanks

because variables are statically bound (as against methods, which are dynamically bound.)

There is only one rule to remember for situations like this:

Nothing else other than overriden methods depend on object type. Everything else other than overriden methods depend on the type of the reference variable

Hope this clears your doubt....

pls let me know and if I am wrong
