Calculate Interest Using Interfaces
What will be the output of the following program?
public class InterestCalculator {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Interest ii = new Interest(4000.0, 5, 2);
        Simple s = new Simple(8000.0, 4, 2);
        print(((IInterest) s).getInterest());
    private static void print(double interest) {
        System.out.print(String.format("~%5.2f~", interest));
interface IInterest { double getInterest(); }
class Interest {
    double principal, rate, years;
    public Interest(double principal, double rate, double years) {
        this.principal = principal; this.rate = rate; this.years = years;
    double getInterest() { return principal * rate * years;    }
class Simple extends Interest implements IInterest {
    public Simple(double principal, double rate, double years) {
        super(principal, years, rate);
    double getInterest() { return super.getInterest() / 100.0; }

A. ~40000.00~00640.00~00640.00~
B. ~40000.00~~640.00~~640.00~

User comments below. All of them might not be correct.

Ans:E In Simple Class: we are extending the Interest class and IInterest interface we have same method "getInterest()" in both . hence it gives compile time error: can hide the method

Answer is b.first and second function calls will call Interest and Simple Class's getInterest method and third function call will call Simple class's interest method since s is an instance of Simple Class.~%5.2 f means  5 digits before decimal and 2 digits after decimal

E runtime error aftr printing 40000.00 as exception in thread main occurs

ans e.
unresolved compilation problem.
need to change the visibility of simple class getinterest to public.
bcz cannot reduce the visibility of interface method.
prints ~4000.00~ after exception occured
