Question: 1

What are the advantages of inheritance?

It permits code reusability.

Reusability saves time in program development.

It encourages the reuse of proven and debugged high quality software, thus reducing problem after a system becomes functional.

Const – This variable means that if the memory is initialized once, it should not be altered by a program.

Volatile – This variable means that the value in the memory location can be altered even though nothing in the program code modifies the contents.

Mutable – This variable means that a particular member of a structure or class can be altered even if a particular structure variable, class, or class member function is constant.

Question: 3

What is RTTI?

Run Time Type Identification (RTTI) lets you find the dynamic type of an object when you have only a pointer or a reference to the base type.

RTTI is the official way in standard C++ to discover the type of an object and to convert the type of a pointer or reference.

The need came from practical experience with C++.
