Thanks in advance,

What happened when you tried? What do you think it would mean if you would use 'super' instead of 'extends' there?

Hi Maheswaran!

well, you can use super but for that you got to have a reason ( i mean you got to have some superclass which is extended or implemented by Animal directly or indirectly)..

if you replace the extends word with super in line 1 here, then you cannot declare an AnimalHolder reference (here, in line 4) which is of the type Dog, because Dog is not the supertype of Animal
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
