abstract class AbstractClass {}
interface MyInterface { }
class Parent extends AbstractClass implements MyInterface { }
class Child extends Parent {}

Only two objects are created. One is Parent object and another is Child object.

Are you sure? I think you only create 1 object here.

Creating an object of a class causes it's super class Constructor to be invoked but that doesn't create extra object.
