Ans is we have UpperBound wild cards which is used to restrict the unknown specific type,it must me child class of the Specified class.... ? extends Number means...any sub class of the we create Object for the variable class with Integer class here it is acceptable Bcz it is an chikd of the we are calling the print method by passing the created this we are calling the getAddition()) there we are  adding x and y to sum and than returing the sum value which is Double...than it wil 8.0+5.0=13.0
