Hi,

Here is the answer.

In Java, runtime polymorphism or dynamic method dispatch is a process in which a call to an overridden method is resolved at runtime rather than at compile-time.

In this process, an overridden method is called through the reference variable of a superclass. The determination of the method to be called is based on the object being referred to by the reference variable.

Example-

class Test {
    void show() {
        System.out.println("A Beautiful flower.");
    }
}

class Rose extends Test {
    void show() {
        System.out.println("pink");
    }
}

class Lotus extends Test {
    void show() {
        System.out.println("rose.");
    }
}

public class RunTime {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Test ref1 = new Test();
        Test ref2 = new Rose();
        Test ref3 = new Lotus();
        ref1.show();
        ref2.show();
        ref3.show();

    }
}

Output-

A Beautiful flower.
pink
rose.

Thanks.
