Hi, all,
here is my question:
It looks that if returned true, then the cast is always possible.
(That is, the code like:

will never give a ClassCastException.) Is it true ?
Thanks, Anna

Yeah thats true.
But the code which you gave wont compile
coz you didn't use the if statement properly

should be made
