What is the syntax of inheritance of class?


Savannah Morley   |   Member since 2019  |  10+ Answers Submitted  |  ✔ Verified

Inheritance is a way of relating two classes so that one class may use another class's members without redefining them (another way is using the friend declaration). A class may be derived from a base class by using the inheritance syntax : class base { }; class derived : base { };

Herein, which is the correct syntax of inheritance?

Explanation: Firstly, keyword class should come, followed by the derived class name. Colon is must followed by access in which base class has to be derived, followed by the base class name. And finally the body of class.

Subsequently, question is, what is the syntax of single inheritance in C++? Single Inheritance: In single inheritance, a class is allowed to inherit from only one class. i.e. one sub class is inherited by one base class only. Multiple Inheritance: Multiple Inheritance is a feature of C++ where a class can inherit from more than one classes.

Hereof, what is inheritance explain with syntax and example?

Inheritance is a mechanism in which one class acquires the property of another class. For example, a child inherits the traits of his/her parents. With inheritance, we can reuse the fields and methods of the existing class. Hence, inheritance facilitates Reusability and is an important concept of OOPs.

Why do we use inheritance?

The major purpose of inheritance is to make a specific section of your project's code reusable with the possibility of adding or removing certain features later. A child class can inherit or override certain methods from the parent class it inherited its methods from without changing the parent class itself.

What is hierarchical inheritance?

Inheritance is the process of inheriting properties of objects of one class by objects of another class. When more than one classes are derived from a single base class, such inheritance is known as Hierarchical Inheritance, where features that are common in lower level are included in parent class.

What is an interface?

An interface is a reference type in Java. It is similar to class. It is a collection of abstract methods. A class implements an interface, thereby inheriting the abstract methods of the interface. Along with abstract methods, an interface may also contain constants, default methods, static methods, and nested types.

What is abstract class in C++?

An abstract class is a class that is designed to be specifically used as a base class. An abstract class contains at least one pure virtual function. You declare a pure virtual function by using a pure specifier (= 0) in the declaration of a virtual member function in the class declaration.
