It is a feature that allows one interface to be used for
general class of actions. The specific action is determined
by the exact nature of the situation. In general

a group of related activities. This helps reduce complexity
by allowing the same interface to be used to specify a
general class of action. It is the compiler's job to select
the specific action (that is, method) as it applies to each

said, it is finally the compiler will decide, which function
to call when, according to the type of data passed to the
