Please let me know the purpose of the below command

What does?
I'm new to java.I'm reading SCJP1.5 by Kathy.
Please help me in understanding the below with an example

The equals() method in class Object uses only the == operator for comparisons,
so unless you override equals(), two objects are considered equal only if the two
references refer to the same object.
Let's look at what it means to not be able to use an object as a hashtable key.
Imagine you have a car, a very specific car (say, John's red Subaru Outback as
opposed to Mary's purple Mini) that you want to put in a HashMap (a type of
hashtable we'll look at later in this chapter), so that you can search on a particular
car and retrieve the corresponding Person object that represents the owner. So you
add the car instance as the key to the HashMap (along with a corresponding Person
object as the value). But now what happens when you want to do a search? You want
to say to the HashMap collection, "Here's the car, now give me the Person object
that goes with this car." But now you're in trouble unless you still have a reference
to the exact object you used as the key when you added it to the Collection. In other
words, you can't make an identical Car object and use it for the search.
The bottom line is this: if you want objects of your class to be used as keys for a
hashtable (or as elements in any data structure that uses equivalency for searching
for´┐Żand/or retrieving´┐Żan object), then you must override equals() so that two
different instances can be considered the same.

What about the below line numbers for the below code.When do we use them.What could be the possible cause for assiging class objects to an interface reference?

I am a bit confused on the following:

Collection is an interface and ArrayList is a concrete class.Then

Collection c =new ArrayList(); ......................(1)

How above(1) is posible as interface objects cannot be created.What could be the idea behind the above instruction(1)

What the below means?

A constructor in a subclass can access the class's inherited members directly. The keyword super can also be used in a subclass constructor to access inherited members via its super class. One might be tempted to use the super keyword in the constructor to specify initial values of inherited fields. However the super () construct provides a better solution, using superclass constructor to initialize inherited state
