What is Overriding and how can it be used?..

Answer / pranab dutta

If a class defines a method using the same name, return
type, and arguments in its super class, then it is called
Overriding. Methods are overridden to make them more
public. The method in the class overrides the method in the
super class.
When the method is invoked for an object of the class, it
is the new definition of the method that is called, and not
the method definition from super class.
