Since is float is more specific than double it prints "float,float".Specific in the sense that float can take only float values...whereas double can take both float and double.

Hope I am right.

Ok So, if i add one more method that takes long, like the one below it should print long,long. Thanks saran.


static String m(long i) {return "long";}

Yes it will print long, long. As both int and long canbe converted to long and long is more specific than float and double.
