Abstract Methods
What will be the output of the following program?
public class CalculateAreas {
    public static void main(String arg[]) {
        Circle circle = new Circle();
        circle.radius = 7.5;
        System.out.println("Area of circle is " + circle.getArea());
abstract class Shape {
    abstract double getArea();
class Circle extends Shape {
    double radius;
    double getArea() {
        return 3.14 * radius * radius;

A. Area of circle is
B. Area of circle is 176.625
C. Compilation Error
D. Runtime Error

B; from main circle object is created.the radius is assigned to 7.5 then in print it calls getArea method . It returns 3.14*7.5*7.5 so value will be 176.625

Ans is B

here we have 3 classes in..
Shape is abstract class means a class with abstract methods is called abstract classes..abstract method means incomplete..means method withot defination..
example: void fun();
we cant create object for the abstract class bt we can create reference for these classes..
class Circle extending shape
@Override is an inbult annoation which is used to give info to the compiler that we are overiding the getArae() method from it's parent class.if these doesnt present in parent class than compiler wil give error

in main class we create Object for the Circle than memroy will allocate for we are assigning raius as 7.5

we are calling getArea() method it wil return the correspondin value..

ans b.
abstract class define a superclass that declares the structure of a givn abstraction without provide a complete implementation of every metho.

this generalizd form is shard with all subclasses.

it allows overridden which is called as run time polymorphism.

here circle class inherits properties of shape class.

instance var for circle class creatd and assigned with 7.5

circle. getarea cald.
it ovrride shape class.

and return 3.14*7.5*7.5.
thn main sop get printd.
