Hi Kathir,

What couldn't you see on line #1 and #2. You are passing a list to the method,
adding Dog, Cat and Bird objects to it accordingly. Inside the method, you are
adding a Dog object to every passed list and after printing its size, you
are traversing the list.
What do you see wrong there?

Hi Kathir,
The source gives compiler error at the following lines

The reason is, there is a down casting from List to ArrayList. So you have to cast explicitly.
