Select the correct answer.

Answer explanation

  1. By converting from a class to interfaces, the interface can acces the overridden methods.
  2. The overridden method myMethod returns the variable x of the class MyClass. Therefore the methods infB.myMethod(), infA.myMethod() and infB.myMethod()
    return 5, which is the value of the variable x of MyClass.

The correct answer is: c.
