ans e .
ref.display() throws nullpointException.

so that called function pointing to nothing.

Answer C

Here we have created three classes here one is School , college and office- college extends from school, office
also extends from school.
In the main method, we have created a variable called input. Then depending upon the value of input,
we have either created an object of school or college or office and assigned it to the reference
of school called ref..
At LINE school, we are only calling the display method using ref.

Answer is E it will throw a run time error since ref will not be initialsed because input==24.88889 is not true (because floating point value is considred as double by default and its precision is higher and comparing a double and float value actually takes precision into account and it becomes false).calling method using null reference will throw a null pointer exception

Ans is NullPointerException will thrown..this Exception will occur when we try access the element of particular class without creating the Object...accessing with the reference than this exception will raise

.here we create an float variable with value every float value is double by default so that we are trying to convert it into float by using the f...

here we create reference for the School class

next we are checking in if conditions...all if conditions are Last If Condition we are we are checking input with 24.88889 which is treated as Double by that here also condition gets that here reference of the School(ref) didnt get assigned with any class Object..after this we are calling the display()...without creating object we are accessing so that NullPointerException wil Thrown...
